Boiled, Steamed, Fried
Does anyone here remember what the symptoms of heat stroke are? Let's see, can you pick them out of this list?
4) incessant painting
5) hairy back
After attending the Fireworks Summer Spectacular Horse Show today as a vendor (see my snazzy booth above?), I have four out of five of the list, and let's just say that I'm not looking for any waxing or shaving products. It was NINETY EIGHT degrees today. I'm a climatized creature. Hubbie enjoys air conditioning and all that entails and I'm used to a nice steady 72 degrees. Do the math.
98 - 72 = Maggie's skin slowly melting off her body.
Now, here's the rub. It was a very productive day for me, and I secured some commissions, but there's two more days of the show left and tomorrow it is supposed to be a high of
One hundred and three degrees. That's one hundred and three Virginia degrees, mind you, which means each of those degrees is bathed in the humidity of a tropical rainforest. Any more humid, and I'm gonna start watching the trees for the tailed monkeys of the lower hemisphere. It took four glasses of water, a plate of rigatoni, three spoonfuls of raw brownie batter, and two brownies to restore me to my health this evening. I shudder to think of what I'll need tomorrow evening.
Wish me luck, oh gentle readers. Send me fortitude and cash gifts.
