June 21 was a date that millions of Americans had been waiting for. The summer solstice arrived over the weekend, officially ushering in the beginning of summer. After a prolonged winter with frigid temperatures, the switch to summer was greeted by many throughout the country with swimming, BBQing, outdoor activities, and more.
If you were one of the many affected by the Polar Vortex this winter, summer is a welcome change to the weather. Whatever your plans, summer is a always a great time for travel, exploration, outdoor fun, friends, family, and so much more. As an added benefit this summer, people have been enjoying the World Cup, coming together at bars, stadiums, parks, and homes to support their favorite teams.
Here at NAQ we wanted to celebrate the beginning of summer (and also wish you all an active and happy summer) with some funny quotes about the season that will no doubt resonate with you.
Some remarks on summertime in general: “Summer vacation: where you drink triple, see double and act single.”
On thoughts we all have when summer rolls around: “It’s almost Summer! Time to find out what my friends with swimming pools have been up to since last summer…”
This captures summertime when growing up: “Summer meant watching cartoons all morning, roaming the neighborhood all day and going back home when the streetlights turned on.”
On dealing with kids in the summer: “Over summer, a lot of parents pick up their troubles and send them off to summer camp.”
On man versus wife in the summer: “Summer is the season when a man thinks he can cook better on an outdoor grill than his wife can on an indoor stove.”
Something that hopefully doesn’t turn out to be true for too many of us: “Someone asked me what book I read of the summer. I replied with, “Facebook.”
Now, get out and go enjoy the summer!
