Who hates summer? Even with all the heat, most people are happier during the summer, if for no other reason than that it sounds like a nice name for a season.
But then there's New York Times columnist Frank Bruni. He hates summer:
Does summer have to be so grammatically piggy, a vain noun with adjectival delusions? Summer vacation. Summer rental. Summer stage. Summer stock. Summer lover. Summer fling. Summer nights. Summer breeze. ...
It’s a mean season, even leaving the sun to the side. People drown, are struck by lightning and wear seersucker. I realize that the last item doesn’t really fit with the previous two, but it’s another potent argument against summer, and I had to put it in somewhere.
Then again, it may have something to do with him having skin cancer.
