The Middle ended its run earlier tonight so I thought I’d link to the piece I wrote for Esquire a while back. Such a great show.

Spring has officially sprung here, and I know this because this weekend in my apartment I killed a bee the size of a Roma tomato.
It was somewhat cool yesterday but that was just a momentary blip. The warmer weather is fully upon us. Goodbye hot tea, hello iced. I really dislike these months but this year I’ve decided to just embrace it. Call it an experiment. I’ll wear shorts and not complain about it. I’ll drink cold drinks and sit in front of the fan on those disgusting humid days and not complain about it. I won’t complain that it’s daylight until 8:30. I’ll just decide to embrace everything that summer has to offer.
Except the bees and other bugs. I reserve the right to complain about those.
Every now and then I like to post a “Hey, go read my weekly column at the Saturday Evening Post!” reminder. So hey, go read my weekly column at the Saturday Evening Post.
Someone read this week’s column and left a comment on a social media site that said, “I thought Andy Rooney was dead.” I believe they meant it as an insult but they don’t realize it’s one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me.
Someone needs to tell Spielberg that this isn’t how last names work.
