it’s official

we’re having a heat wave. an official heatwave.
i just don’t understand our modern society anymore. we’re supposed to be the brightest, richest, most technologically advanced and almost as sophisticated as the french.

yet tonight on the news, the top story was…

we hit 91 degrees. 91. dear god. that’s the third day of “above” 90 degrees and that means it’s an OFFICIAL FUCKIN HEATWAVE!

it’s just the worst thing.
the action news team even gave us advice cuzz ya know we just wouldn’t be able to figure this one out.
it’s hot.
drink water.
don’t you dare go out in this weather because you may not survive. you could, no, you would in all likelihood, sweat to death!


i seem to remember a time, not so long ago, where people sort of expected that it would get hot during the summer. there was a time, in my not so distant memory, when even people who didn’t have central air managed to survive in above 90 degree weather.

it’s true. honest. in fact, until moving to this house 6 years ago, i NEVER had central air. really.

i wonder what happened?
when did we lose the ability to adapt?
when did we become so stupidly civilized?

my advice?
go outside. sweat a little. get used to it.

and then, when summer is over, go outside when it’s really cold and pay no attention to that weather man behind the curtain.
