What are your springtime rituals?
Rachel Scott: Clean up dog poo that’s been waiting for me most of the winter ...
Scott Renshaw: Nothing that wouldn’t have gotten me burned at the stake in colonial Massachusetts.
Bryan Mannos: Out with the old, in with the new.
Derek Carlisle: The cleaning and fine tuning of a 1987 AMC Eagle for the desert sessions will be my new springtime ritual.
Doug Kruithof: Tax procrastination ... Help!
Susan Kruithof: Worshipping the sun. Over the winter I get so pale, I forget I’m half Mexican. A tan is a must.
Paula Saltas: It’s that time of the year to shave my legs.
Jerre Wroble: I slide open my bedroom window after four months of a hermetic seal, dust the cobwebs off the plants and begin drinking Sauvignon Blanc (instead of Merlot). All while wearing an Easter bonnet.
Michael Barclay: Claritin-D. Damned allergies are going to kill me one of these days.
Rachel Piper: Nearly every year, as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, I develop some kind of lame sickness that sends me crawling directly into bed when I get home from work. Ah, spring!
Kolbie Stonehocker: Spending as much time outside as I can before I have to hide from the sun until October—that blazing star hates me.
