The First Labor Day of the Rest of My Life…

Posted on September 2, 2008

Will somebody please tell me where the summer went? It seems like only yesterday that May arrived with all her promises of warm weather, barbecues, and the Beijing Olympics. Fast forward to this moment – the fairest season of the year is now a but memory, having zipped by faster than a caffeinated Usain Bolt. 

Enter Labor Day – traditionally the demilitarized zone between Vacation and School/Work. On one hand, it is the last day we have to enjoy the “summer”, and thus can be the sweetest. On the other hand, it’s also the day we have to get our clothes washed and ironed, school supplies purchased, lunches packed, and our alarm clocks set for the morning after, when Responsibility reclaims our lives.

This Labor Day, however has been different for me. For one thing, there is no school to return to. Only work, and that’s been going on for the rest of the summer. I still have to get used to this idea.

My friend called me at the last minute, and asked if I maybe, perhaps, possibly, perchance, was interested in going with him to the U.S. Open. My immediate response: “Are you kidding me?” (That meant yes, by the way. I’ve been meaning to land tickets to the event for the longest while!)

Long story short, I got to see the Night Session at Arthur Ashe Stadium, which included a match with Serena Williams! Of course, I brought my camera and had a field day as well…however, as I write this post, it’s nearly 3 AM and I have to get up for work at 6:30. :-/

The pictures will be up soon. And with that last thought, I bid you all good night (or good morning?) and leave you with a picture you couldn’t get anywhere else but New York.
