It's HOT ! Scorchin' HOT!
It's is so hot right now, I feel as if though my brain is on a skillet being turned over slowly... melting by degrees. (now if you can understand that then either you are as hot as I am or you understand me better than I do myself..lol) Anyways that image has reminded me of that "Say No to Drugs" advertisement on American Tv.
"This is your brain.. this is ur brain on drugs szzht .!"
Not a pretty picture unfortunately, the same can be said of how I look most of the time now. My clothes are sticking to my body not because I am into tight fitting attires but because my tee shirts after a span of say 30 minutes get soaked through looking like they were painted on.
This heat is unbearable, some people may think that coming from a tropical island I should be used to such conditions. Yes I am from a small island where the only seasons we get to experience is Wet N Dry but folks, the beaches are no more than a stroll away. The best ones will require a drive but they are worth the trip. There are also a couple of water holes in town like Fuipu'a and Loto Samasoni, Sliding Rocks if you need a quick fix.
Not forgetting the trusty old water hose. Granted that not every family in Samoa enjoys the luxury of a swimming pool in the backyard but u can bet ur money that most households are in possesion of a water hose. (Our one was bought especially to water my dad's hedge and secondly for my mom to wave around to remind us, of what lies in store for those who mis behave.)
Unlike here in Japan where the water hose is used strictly to wash cars, drive ways, water the gardens etc, back home u can hose yourself down in full view of the passing public if u desire an audience *jokes* ha!ha!
But honestly I am Hot, so hot that the only thought in my head is to find a place where I can sit/eat or sleep without having to wipe my face a kazillion times or fan myself to the point where I feel like I have dislocated my wrist. I want to find a cool place where sweat rags are prohibited. I am hot and I am having trouble sleeping.. even food is losing its appeal. I am hot and not only has it affected my appetite it has also interfered with my usual jolly disposition. (yeah rite)
I have no excuse to offer my husband for my snide un warranted remarks, nor to my daughter for my un responsiveness to her playful gestures.
It's hot and my temper is flaring up right along with it. I am hot and the constant showers are not helping. I am hot and not even the choice of different flavored and in the refridgerator is making things better.
