The yellow sun of this system may help life exist on this gatherings of rock, and give our buddy Superman his super powers, but one step into the light during the months of May to September in the Northern Hemisphere and our nemesis can suck the life out of us, forcing us to retreat inside and watch more TV. Add in Sol's fiendish friend Mr. Humidity and we became dazed, confused, and in need of an espresso hit fast. We find a Dunkin' Donuts a good replacement for the Fortress of Solitude, plus you can get munchkins there.
Truly, our Fortresses of Solitude is anyplace that the air conditioning is blasting in the low Kelvin range. And there are other people sitting around you that have no idea that you are actually MS Man or MS Woman. Just another person with the paper and a mocha cooler. Sometimes we will even go to the cinema and sit through the Lone Ranger for two hours plus for the icy soda and popcorn. Then we can walk at our own pace (assuming we sat in the "handicapped" chairs) and get to the air conditioned car so we go back to our air conditioned homes. Summer's great, isn't it?
Even Superman can have an off day. And we don't need the Man of Steel to tell us MS Superheroes and Superheroines to know that autumn is a mere 76 days away. Guess I should mow the lawn sometime before that.
