It's gorgeous outside today. Sunny and warm all across San Francisco. Me? Trapped inside an air conditioned office. Make that a nearly abandoned office, everyone is on vacation.
What to do? Buy a big bunch of fresh mint at the store and put it in a vase on your desk. It smells so fresh and summery, just like mojitos and iced tea. And if it can get a little sun, the roots will grow and it will last a couple weeks.
