I have a feeling that it’s not as hot as Northern California right now.
When there are very few birds flying around, the bugs are doing dive bomb maneuvers after your blood and the geckos are hiding, you know it hot.
So to solve this problem there are a few options: (yes pretty bullet points again):
- Stay in the pool until either you are so waterlogged you can’t float anymore or the SPF 1,000,000 you put on first thing that morning has worn off.
- Put a fan on the table with a bowl full of ice cubes in front of it and let the cool breeze hit you in the face until the ice melts. Then repeat until you run out of ice because the ice maker can’t keep up.
- Or my favorite, stay inside with the a/c set at 68 deg. until there’s a brown out.
Of course if you do item number three it will help more with getting your word count or page count or #wordmongering done. Sitting back in a/c comfort with a tall cold drink trying to decide if the Main Character in your book is going to get the s**t kicked out of him or if he is going to pull a ninja/ kung fu/ samurai super move on the bad guy and kick some serious butt! What could be better than that? Oh, wait maybe it would be sitting here:
With a tall glass of this:
With this guy to rub lotion on the spots you can’t reach:
If you don’t recognise him that is Dean from Supernatural! >:)
So what do you do to beat the heat? Your favorite cooling drink with or without alcohol? Do you use sunscreen or are you a tan-all-the-time-and-damn-the-age-spots type of person? Do we need to pick a different cabana boy or are you happy with this one? Guys, what cabana girl would you like to have?
Thanks for stopping by……going for more ice the bowl is empty! LOL!
