I took a long walk after work tonight; made it up to Belmont before I packed it in and got on the bus. I was starting to feel a little chilly, actually. Even though the calendar says it’s May 1st, I found myself thinking that the weather is still a tad cooler than it ought to be.
Meanwhile, back at the apartment, my landlady has been busily fixing up the unit across the hall from mine, preparing it for a new tenant moving in this week. Toward that end, she has removed the mechanism that causes the front door to close automatically.
So as I was inserting my key into the front door on this chilly evening, I suddenly stopped as I read the neatly lettered sign posted at eye level on the door. The exact wording reads as follows: “Spring Has Been Temporarily Disconnected.”
All I can say is, this explains a lot!
