Do you know what’s odd? Checking the weather forecast in Scotland and really hoping that the weather is bad. That’s what I’ve been doing this week, making sure the sunshine that exists as of typing this does indeed no longer exist upon publication day. I’m sure it won’t, this is, of course, Scotland. For American readers, Scotland is the Washington state of Europe. It rains, a lot. They say Eskimos have a hundred different words for snow, we have the same for rain. It’s not so bad, though, at least we don’t have poorly conceived sparkly vampires here. Good luck with that, Washington.
