Putting on My Summer Tank(a)-top (Weekly Writing Challenge)

Challenge?  Accepted.

———-

Holiday weekend?
I groan at the thought of it.
Tourists everywhere.
Massive throngs all demanding
Adults losing their children.

I remain stoic
“Sorry, that will end today.”
“Yes, that is sold out.”
They need their outings perfect.
Summer was too short! (Again)

The day post-Labor?
Now that is a vacation.
Cat purrs on my lap.
Everyone else, get busy.
It’s my turn to go have fun.

Tom gets it.

 

(I also answered the challenge with a story on my Anecdotal Tales page.  Apparently I like this challenge.)

He's a simple enough fellow. He likes movies, comics, radio shows from the 40's, and books. He likes to write and wishes his cat wouldn't shed on his laptop.
