With the temperatures rising, hurdling over 100 degrees and then just sitting there, it makes remaining cool the number one priority for many people.
Obviously, I don’t fit in with the apparent theme of the day.
The sun is unbearably hot and so bright that it makes me squint with my glasses on. No, I do not sit and stare at the sun. (rolling my eyes)
The heat is affecting everyone and everything. Flowers and grass are prematurely turning brown because it takes a billion gallons just to keep them alive.
Okay, I exaggerated a bit with that one.
It seems that many find this is the perfect weather and temperature to get a tan which is something I know quite a bit about even though I have never experienced said condition.
I’m not envious of golden bronze skin either.
I mean really, doesn’t everyone wish they could glow in the dark? I must be the real envy especially if I were to grace the public in a bathing suit in the light of day.
I just had a mental image of a huge beach crowd running from me the way the masses ran screaming from Godzilla. Ahhh, no….Not a pretty picture.
Sandals and beach bag. Check.
Of course, lying in the sun and baking one’s skin requires constant hydration.
A drink that is filled with enough die to keep your tongue and lips blue for hours is a must or so I’ve been told. Besides, it is even advertised as a “Thirst Quencher,” so a bottle or two in the bag remains a necessity.
Never more than five feet from the body at any given moment are the two staples of life. They are more important than food, sleep, clothes or hair products.
When the sun’s rays just get too hot to bear lying under them one more second, submerging in clear water is the quickest way to instantly cool off the now bronzed skin.
Apparently it is the hot theme.
