Shovels, Creeper Vans, and Swimming Pools.

Today started off with an early wake-up call. Jon called me this morning and asked me if I could help him load sand from the river into the bed of his truck. His dad wants to use the sand in his garden, and called him earlier that morning to go get the sand. I dragged myself out of bed, got dressed, and waited for his truck to arrive at my house. We drove down to the river and began shoveling sand into the back of his truck when a couple of vehicles drove by. All of the cars that drove by were vans, most of the creepy, windowless “rape van” variety, and they would pull into the parking lot, pause briefly, and then drive away. It was pretty creepy, although I later realized that we probably didn’t look like the most normal people either (Two teenage boys frantically shoveling sand into the back of a truck is normal, right?). Nonetheless, holding a shovel made me feel more secure when these creeper vans were around.

Loading and transferring the sand to Jon’s garden didn’t take very long, and we finished around noon. After spreading the final load of sand in the garden, Jon, Anne, Kristin, and I went to Rose Park to go swimming. It was a nice day for the most part, but the weather changed from sunny to cloudy as the day progressed. We still had fun jumping off the diving boards and playing tag in the cold water though, and it was a nice way to spend my day off. I have blisters on my feet from spending so much time in the water, so work on Wednesday isn’t going to be fun. Blerg.

It’s hard to believe that July is almost over. School will be starting in a couple of weeks. The Final Summer is coming to an end…
