Goggle Eyes

Summer's not over, yet. Right? There's still plenty of heat (plenty!), sweaty shopping, lazy Sundays, small waves, humid rains, and-- most importantly-- goggle eyes. Do you remember those? The second he popped these blue eye-suckers off, I was promptly transported back to childhood: running (walking!) around the pool with sore rings around my eyes from my goggles. I permanently looked like a raccoon. All summer- eyes with red rings. That, and if I put those on today I immediately look 4 years old all over again. So here's to summer or what's still left. It was a hot one. A memorable one. And to goggle eyes. May they and their unforgiving red rings never grow old.
