All year long, forearms (or, as doctors call them, "arm-calves,") get to breathe and enjoy the scenery -- either because of short-sleeved shirts or rolled-up long-sleeve shirts.
But what about the calves (or, as doctors call them, "leg-calves")? They're cooped up inside pants from September through May -- and only get a bit of freedom once summer rolls around and people wear shorts.
Until "rolling up one's pants at work" catches on as a thing -- I'm working on it -- shorts are the parole agent of the lower leg.
Other Best Things About Summer:
1. Ice cream.
2. Wearing a slightly damp bathing suit...
3. The smell of grilling in the air.
4. The streets always seem to be lined with American flags.
6. Sudden Thunderstorms.
7. Roller coasters.
8. Helium balloons.
