Man, this climate is definitely not for me. Too fooking hot! Yesterday Wednesday it was +38ºC (that’s 101ºF for you colonials) during the day and about 28ºC (82ºF) at 11 p-fucking-m! I laid in the bed cursing until I feel asleep from exhaustion and dehydration. And in the morning I found my wife sleeping curled up around the fan. Today Yesterday was better, but fuck — I’m not made for this climate. I can deal with the dry heat. If I could choose I’d rather be a piece of jerky than a raisin.
Honestly, I can’t wait for fall and even winter! If you are freezing you can at least layer stuff – I don’t mind wearing 15 sweaters and look like a giant fuzzball. But what to do in the summer? You can’t get more naked than naked! And it’s not like you can walk around outside nekkid, either. Well, technically you can, but we are not in Europe here, right, so I will probably get arrested and they will have an 8-year-old at the station who will point at me and say “That man!” — so; no public nudity for me.
And our car thinks the weather sucks, too. While it still happily retains water in the right passenger door, it decided to gorge itself on its coolant and to overheat. Like, daily. So we’ve dropped it off at the garage and picked it up today and are going to drop it off again for a longer stretch to have the mechanic dude fix it. Surgery.
P.S.: This post is one day late, because I’m a lazy bum.
