By September, they were hitting each other.
Now it’s mid-October and I notice that the
young technician and apprentice at work are
diligently squeezing one another’s pimples.

    Sounds like a clever metaphor for the ever changeable Spring with its endless stream of High and Low pressure systems squeezing each other hot and cold, wind and calm. (Report) Reply
