We were sitting on the outdoor patio deck overlooking Lake Milton while visiting some of our favorite peeps recently when it happened.
It was one of those rare, glimpse sightings, like a shooting star streaking across the cloudless night sky or a sudden waterspout churning off the shores of Key West or Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries. Blink and you could miss it, you dig?
It was a stealth attack; so seemingly innocuous and lasting mere seconds from start to finish that it took me a while to fully absorb the blow.
It’s difficult to discern, even now, whether it was planned or more stream-of-consciousness in nature, sorta like that spontaneous combustion phenomenon you read about online from time to time.
Whatever the intent, one of the guests in the gathering blurted out upon her departure: “Remember, summer’s only 12 short weekends; use them wisely.”
Hard, hard gulp.

Right here on what will hopefully be a bright, sunny Sunday, y'all. See you then!
