You may have noticed that I have not been posting every day — I know – I made a promise to myself that I would do it – but all I can say is that this resolution lasted longer than my New Year’s Resolution to give up desserts (which lasted until about 5 minutes after the ball dropped in New York!). However, the other reason may be that it is now the Dog Days of August.
I’m not sure where the term Dog Days comes from — but I’m guessing it’s because everyone smells like wet, stinky, sweaty dogs because it is so darn hot! And — you want to sleep all of the time because the heat drains every last bit of energy out of you – and there is none left to even write a short post!
So – why I haven’t I written as much? Because it’s HOT! So hot, that I don’t want to sit in front a warm laptop and make any extra movements which would generate even more heat. Plus — it is very difficult to type and hold an icy, cold beverage. I could type with one hand – but that would take forever – and then there is the risk of electrocution because my sweat or the icy can’s sweat drips into the machine and sparks would fly — which of course, would cause even MORE HEAT!
It’s so hot that I don’t even like THINKING about doing anything. That causes synapses to fire which generate energy, which probably generate heat – which is why there are beads of perspiration on my brow!
So until this stupid heat wave stops, I will do something that takes no thinking (hence no brain heating up from firing synapses) and no movement (typing, walking and possibly breathing are out of the question) – I’VE GOT IT! I’ll watch TV – and if I don’t ever change channels (I never do anyway since my hubby has control of the remote), I will stay nice and cool!
