When summer finally arrived in Mundania, the woman of the house rejoiced and embraced the outdoor life. Her activities included, but were not limited to:
trimming back the herb garden and topping scapes off the garlic,
picking, washing and freezing raspberries for future jam making,
watering and weeding the garden,
expanding the firepit,
spinning on the veranda,
and creating/knitting a new tank top.
But where were Mundania’s children? The eldest was sleeping off a summer flu. The middle child amused herself by creating macabre works of art, while the youngest lass alternated between cooking/eating and watching movies via Netflix.
Meanwhile, the man of Mundania slaved away in a bleak and institutional environment, all to pay for the wool, comfortable bed, paint and food enjoyed by the rest of the family.
The woman sincerely hopes that Mundania’s summer weather will last more than one day, so that the other citizens might enjoy themselves as well… especially the man.
