Word of the Day: Today

Today was that day. You know the one. The day of the year where the sun finally comes out and warms the Earth that has been in a perpetual state of FREEZING since Halloween. It's the day where people bust out shorts even though it's probably still a little bit too cold for that, but they don't care.

Today is the day where Adam's field is filled with playing sports. People were playing football, ultimate frisbee, and even some really weird game where one guy stands bent over by a brick wall with his head toward the wall and his butt sticking out, and all of his friends take turns trying to hit him with a soccer ball. I hope no one hit him...he was going to bash his brains out on that wall if anyone did. I guess sunshine does weird things to people.

Today is the day when there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and people can see that the semester will, in fact, end. Summer will come this year like it does every year, and the doubts of December are chased away by the warmth of spring.

Today is the day where I saw the first flowers peering up through the ground, as if to say, "Is it safe to come out now?" I don't know if it is, seeing as in Michigan snow will pop out of nowhere, but I certainly hope that those flowers are safe because they're beautiful and their yellow blooms mirror the sun. They add a splash of color to a world that has been black and white for too many months.

You know the day I'm talking about, right? Well, that was today.
