unintentional haiku

This past week I got a text from N that read in typical cryptic textese: "Leaves falling and it feels like summer. Weird."  (For those of you that don't know, yes, we finally reenabled texting after a few years of having it disabled.  Do I regret it?  A little, but not because of texts like this.) Anyway, N isn't a particularly poetic bloke, but I read the text as haiku-ish:

leaves falling
feels like summer

And then, of course teased him about it repeatedly.  What he meant was that the autumn leaves are changing colors and falling, but that it's been consistently warm. And that's really strange. Yesterday when we got it the car it was hot, as in about 85 degrees outside, let alone inside the car.  Temperature-wise, this past week could have been in July.  I wonder if the government controls the weather...
