So, here in the lovely Midwest, we are expecting to reach 107 degrees for our high temperature today. Umm, last time I checked, we weren’t living on the sun, so what gives?
The hot days were exciting as a kid when we were in school because we would get sent home if it got up to 100 degrees. Now all the schools have air conditioning, so they just skip the outdoor recess on the blistering hot days like today.
Have you ever tried frying an egg outside on the asphalt in the hot weather? I always wanted to, but I could hear my abuelo in the back of my head, shaming me for wasting food on such a silly thing. He has a point. Plus, eww.
Icky hot days like today also make dinner planning a pain. Who wants to slave over the stove or turn the oven on when it’s a billion degrees outside? Even using the crock pot sounds too hot, because who wants to eat hot food when it’s already balmy as it is?
I guess being hot makes me crabby, since this entire post is one gripe after another, huh?
Wherever you are, I hope you are keeping cool. I think today calls for lots of freeze pops. Or margaritas. You know, to keep cool.
