Summit Up 9-29-10: Back in the Speedo for extra-bonus summer daze!
September 28, 2010
Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s standing around in a Speedo and an Apache headdress wondering what in tarnation’s up with this weather! We had our blow-up wading pool back out on the lawn, the beer cooler deployed on the deck and the cocoa-butter tanning oil teed up next to the sprinkler, the volleyball net and the croquet set. It’s like totally summer still!
MILLIONS OF SUMMIT UP READERS: Back up a sec: We understood the part about the Speedo, as in it was warm and you were minimally dressed (horrified though we are at the thought of anyone other than a world-class swimmer wearing a Speedo – especially doughy journalists), but what was that about the Apache headdress?
SU: Nothing really. It’s just the way we roll. A statement, if you will, not only of our free spirit but also our reverence for Native American garb.
Speaking of, we recommend to these Toastmaster humorous speech folks above a sartorial makeover for their upcoming performance. Speedos are funny for the guys, and you can’t go wrong holding a rubber chicken or two and whacking each other over the head with it. Perhaps we’re getting things confused with Slapstickmasters, which meets at the Moose Jaw Wednesdays at 3 a.m.
Anyway, good luck! We’re outta space – someone buy some more ads so we can have bigger papers!
