First of all, it was so hot you could fry an egg…on my head.
There I was this morning – trying to do my hair (includes blow drying and hot rollers), and the sweat was just rolling down my face. Then I tried putting make-up on. Good luck. I think it had all melted off by the time I made it out the door.
How I hate the heat and humidity! WHAT do people SEE in summer?! WHAT??? It’s sticky, hot, humid – body odor pollutes the air. People drive like maniacs. I saw four accident sites on the way to work. People scuttle about scantily clad and expect you to do the same. It’s madness!
So, it’s hot. And then I get in my car – thinking that at least I can drive to work with the windows down, hot air coming in the windows, at least cooling me down a bit. I’m NOT turning my air conditioning on – in my car or in my house. I’m just NOT going to do it. It’s too expensive and frankly…it’s TOO early. Madness.
Oh, but then it starts to rain. “It’s okay,” I assure myself. “It’s just a little rain. I can still drive with the windows down.” So I said to myself...until it was coming down in sheets.
So, I was forced to roll my windows up in my cramped little car. Set the sauna to 8, please. It was hot, no air flow…and to make it worse, I had just put a new air freshener in my car. Balsam and Pine – full strength. Mmmm. Yea, that was fun to smell all the way to work.
When I walked into work, someone said, “What smells like Christmas trees?”
Thankfully, my office is air conditioned, and someone had the great mercy to turn it on. Oh, but how I am dreading the dog days of summer.
It’s madness I tell you…madness!
