Hot and Bothered

Well, we did it! We got through the heat wave. If you live on the east coast, then you know what hot is lately. To be fair, if you live on the west coast you know what hot is too, but I think it's a little different. Dryer, less humid. The east coast is lush, like a can of peas, but very humid. As I waved goodbye to the heat wave today, I said to myself, "Phew, I'm glad that's over, now it will just rain a lot." The guy next to me asked me what I meant, and I shut up and quickly walked away feeling embarrassed. But what did I mean? I'm glad that temperatures will be in the 80's instead of the 90's. Last week, it was so hot you could have fried an egg on the side of my face. I considered laying outside on my stomach and frying bacon on my back, you know, kill two birds with one greasy stone as the saying goes. Didn't do it; too messy and involved for my amount of lethargy. But alas, this week will be cooler, and not just because of the normal coolness that radiates off of me like x-rays from the sun or the Bay Rays from their dugout for all of you baseball fans out there. Listen, comfortable weather is fine with me. So I'll be here next week, cool as a cucumber in 85 degree weather, or in other words, warm.
