This post was originally going to be titled Χαρούμενος Απρίλης, meaning “Cheerful April,” but then I took a closer look at Tsarouchis’ Απρίλης, and I think that what it conveys more than anything else is coyness. He’s flirting with us. So I changed the title to Τσαχπινικός Απρίλης, which means “Flirtatious April.”
We in New England know what a tease April can be. He runs hot and cold. Kind to us one day, cruel the next. All the while, flirting with us, holding out the promise of pleasures yet to come.
It was 70◦ Fahrenheit and sunny in Boston today. If it had been a Saturday, we’d have been at Gay Head in a heartbeat. Tomorrow and Sunday it’s supposed to be colder and rainy, and on Monday, we’re back down into the 50’s.
That’s April. Always flirting.
