The Weather

Javier from Walton Avenue didn’t say a word when he arrived at Juan Carlos’s coffee cart this morning.

“Are you sick?” someone asked.

“What, me?” Javier said weakly. “No, I’m just a little down I guess.”

“Down about what?” someone asked.

“The weather,” Javier said.

“What are you talking about?” someone shot. “It’s pretty nice for November.”

“That’s the problem,” Javier fired back. “I want it to get cold and snow and sleet so we can get it over with. I’m ready for Opening Day and winter won’t even get here.”

“So you like the way the team is coming together?”

“Oh yeah,” Javier howled. “In the last week we’ve gotten back our catcher and closer and cleanup hitter. Now if it would just get cold...”

“It’s always gotta be something with you,” someone said.

I must say that spring does seem a long way off right now. I hope the offseason starts picking up speed…
