First we have Memorial Day, which means barbecues, off to a great start!
And then it's already June! Which isn't as great as it sounds thanks to June Gloom.
So while your East Coast friends are doing this...
You're trying to pass the time with a scenic hike
But you survive June and then it's July! Summer is here!
Which means it's HOT.
And even hotter if you live in the Valley. Which means far from the beach. Which means you have to resort to something else to cool off.
Maybe one of your nice friends will invite you to hang out at their pool
Or you could check out one of the many public pools LA has to offer
Or you can just suck it up and drive to the beach.
Where you pay $12 to park.
Don't forget to apply sunscreen once you're there
Don't be lazy about that sunscreen
And make sure someone you trust does your back
Maybe you can even get in some exercise at the beach
It's also a great time to have a beach bonfire at Dockweiler...
After all of that you're gonna need to refuel.
But remember, it's HOT OUT.
You survived a beach day in Los Angeles! What's next?
Remember, you're in LA, so you have to park 10 blocks from the bar, which makes for a great walk in the heat
Why else is LA great in the summer? It hasn't rained in months so the city is just majestic looking
And it's forest fire season, which means these little guys are in danger (oh no!)
Sure it's gonna be a hot sweaty mess of a summer
But soon enough it will be Fall and Winter
And you can stop doing this
And start doing this
While your East Coast friends are doing this
