A Little Note
I have two problems with July being designated as Picnic Month:
- July in the Northern hemisphere is hotter than the face of the sun. No sane person will choose to sit on the hot ground outside during the hot month of July with a river of hot sweat flowing down your back.
- Representation of picnics in stock photos and Instagram is bunk. There is no way for us real people to create a picnic situation that’s anywhere near the expectation they portray. I mean, who is schlepping the crap out to the rocks for that intimate picnic? Who likes sitting on rocks for hours (because it would need to be hours to make the schlepping worth the effort)? No one. No one likes any of that.
