Solemn Farewell

Goodbye Mesa.

Goodbye QT.

Goodbye heat.

Goodbye chips and salsa.

Goodbye my daily frozen yogurt fix.

Goodbye indie music scene.

Goodbye freeways of the gods.

Goodbye Westwood.

Goodbye Sonic.

Goodbye Steve (you crook).

Goodbye awkward conversations with people I haven’t seen in years and may not see again for another few years. How’s Canada? Cold. So nice to see you go.

Goodbye Hershey, my parents’ wretched new puppy who doesn’t hold a candle to our poor old dead dog, Sampson.

Goodbye feeling of sheer exhilaration when I walk out of an overly-air conditioned church building and into the scorching heat of the summer sun.

Goodbye overspending.

Goodbye overeating.

Goodbye overspending on overeating.

Goodbye spray-on sunscreen.

Goodbye Red Brick Pizza.

Goodbye friend.

Goodbye family.

Goodbye Mesa.

Goodbye Sun.

    QT and sheer exhilaration when I walk out of an overly-air conditioned church building and into the scorching heat of the summer sun are the things I will miss most about AZ when it comes time to leave. Maybe I’ll use QT locations as one of my criteria for choice of law schools.

    We are going to miss you. Even though I do hate the heat, there is something to the mesa summers….

    Hello wonderful (cough, cough) Mayberry! Where it hasn’t stopped raining in weeks and we’ve only had one real day of sun! On the plus side, you’ll get to see me again, and really, that makes it all worthwhile now doesn’t it!

    No! Come back! I hope you made it home okay. (i miss you already.) and so do the bugs. ;)

    Kind of sad, Camille… Have a safe trip home!

  7. Sounds like you had a fabulous visit – hope the trip home is amazing.

    And overspending on overeating? I might have to steal that.
