Socking the Solar Solecisms
Socking the Solar Solecisms.
Noth/ing on this whirling wen of wheel and woe is certain, except the uncertainty of “certainties;” but speaking in round figures (which usually amount to nought) even if November is equinoctial and December is equinoxious, February can be relied upon to give a rendering of “the good old summer time” with prevarications.
January, being the first bout in the annual meteorological mix-up, often “mixes it” through utter exuberance and sheer sherbet, but February can be relied on to knock spots off the sun and sock the solar solecisms.
