Frosted Flakes: 40 days...

New, 16 comments

There’s a lot left to do this summer

It is now 40 days until the Nebraska football team kicks off the season against the mighty Zips of Akron. The mighty Zips....fun to type.

So, you have 40 days of summer left for enjoyment before the “Frost Warning” turns into a full on “Frost Effect”. Here is a list of things I recommend doing before you life gets fully taken over by Husker football.

  • Grill outside with the family
  • Play golf
  • Go for a run
  • Spend time in one of the wonderful Nebraska State Parks
  • Take a bike ride
  • Go boating, canoeing, kayaking, or some other water activity
  • Go climb a mountain
  • Go to an outside music festival
  • Check out one of Nebraska’s wonderful county fairs
  • Go to the Nebraska State Fair
  • Walk a precinct for you favorite candidate running for office
  • Do yoga, outside for once
  • Fly a kite (seriously, it’s fun)
  • Go to a baseball game
  • Make and enjoy a night in front of a campfire (don’t burn yourself)
  • Get out of Nebraska and see another state (I recommend Colorado before we beat them so badly that they don’t let us back in)
  • Visit Tim Miles family in Doland, SD
  • Dig a hole
  • Put yourself in said hole
  • Have someone fill the hole back up with you in it
  • Contemplate what you have done with your life

Folks,read this and then go outside.

And leave your phone at home.

Anyways, on to flakes...
