I watched the spiky lawn next door get mowed, and now I'm listening to the chattering lawn sprinkler with which the ravaged grass is being dampened. The air remains so still that no scent of it reaches me. I have the fan on, trying to bring a bit of coolness into the room, but it isn't working very well. Sluggo will soon protest by showing me his blue screen. I guess I'll be spending the early night outdoors with the crickets.
