2019 summer support group

Post by legitimatebeef » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:03 am

"The only thing less dignified than an amateur golfer is an amateur golfer laboring in the heat. A schlubby, aging, altogether gross amateur golfer all covered in sweat, leering at the cart girl, topping the ball all over the place."

Find myself needing some support again. Boy, I am really in the dumps this summer. Looking over last year's inaugural summer support, I can observe at least a thin veneer of humor on most of my utterances. But right now, I am feeling no humor towards the current state of things. Maybe I done reversed my poles. We'll see this winter, if I don't require a support group, then we'll know I have completely flipped.

Lately, I am not even down with the long days. I don't like eating dinner while the sun's still out. I like sunlight okay, but I also like night time. Like Bob Dylan once sang, "You know the night time, is the right time, to be with the one you love..." Night time is a time to rest, unwind from the day, enjoy a beverage or two, kick back on the couch etc. Well near the solstice time, we don't actually get to enjoy much of the night. Literally going to bed a scant few hours after sunset. Screw that. I mean, there's nothing to be done about it, I'm just saying, I am no longer gay for long days and late sunsets. It's enough already.

I don't even want to get started on the humidity lately.

If I had unlimited means, perhaps I could split the year between hemispheres, thereby avoiding summer altogether.

I can't even joke about the humidity anymore. Nobody needs more humidity metaphors similes ("It's like walking into a hot towel blahj blaj blahaahdajdk"). Frankly I don't even want to talk about it, don't even want to think about it. Thank God for air conditioning. I know that A/C is bad for the environment, increases the atmospheric heat etc but I don't care. I don't care about any of this anymore. Talking about society, community, humanity, etc. All that stupid bullshit. Strictly care about my own comfort and happiness. I think it's safe to say we all think like this now. We are all shitty and hopelessly self-centered, not to mention tribal. In other words, society is officially a failed experiment now.

You are about a month late to the party, been there since before Memorial Day.
I will stand in the fairway, I want to be out of your range.

Presumably your job can be done anywhere there is internet, yes?

NYC from October 1 to March 31... Lima Peru (or Ecuador, Chile, etc ...) from April 1 to September 30. Rent out the apartment for a "great" NYC summer and use it to pay for South America. Use some of that organ between the ears.

Gonna be hot and sticky and crowded. None of those things agree with you, Beef. I pity the poor fool who gets in your way today.

Hot and sticky to the max, but not crowded. Neshanic Valley is my favorite course now. @GBOGEY knows what I am talking about. I shot a 90 something. 41 on the back nine. Not bad considering I haven't been on a golf course since early May. :puke I hit a couple decent shots, just enough to keep me from thinking about quitting unfortunately.

All it takes is one good shot and you'll be back. Thankfully, for all of us here, you had more than one. :up

Finally looked at the scorecard. 52/41. That includes a 10 on the front nine, fuckin shit. Three lost balls on one stupid hole. Pretty wide fairway too. It takes a real man to accept that many penalty strokes. That fourth drive was pounded though. :fkno

Love and miss Neshanic. Only issue is you feel out of place if you try to walk but it is walkable.

Shoutout to everyone in a heat wave. We are looking at a *low* of 90-something for the next few days. Extreme humidity. Blackouts anticipated. :onfire

Might as well embrace it and go play golf. The Neshanic clubhouse is air conditioned for after the round.

Dangerous hot now. Hundred and teens for the past couple days. Night time brings no relief either. Fuck. I just went to the gym then a quick bike ride and jog out in the heat. For a few minutes at a time, it feels kind of good. Why not.
