I meant to write about ANA today, but my brain is a bit fried from the heat wave that the northeastern half of the United States has been experiencing. New England isn’t supposed to have weather like this—so air conditioning isn’t necessarily as ubiquitous as in other parts of the nation. My second floor apartment is sweltering, and my second floor office boils. I only have a tiny floor fan, and an open window which is letting in hot air. Returning to my hermetically sealed office after the 4th of July (US Independence Day) weekend, which was also relatively hot, meant the air inside was literally cooking, and it made me physically ill to sit inside (not kidding).
After work I took a DVD to the library so I could at least cool down in the air conditioning for a little bit. Unfortunately my little dog, who is covered in thick black fur, couldn’t come with me. I felt so bad for him and gave him four cold showers over the course of the evening to try and cool him down. AS said it was so hot that she saw squirrels walking around like dazed zombies, too hot and tired to scurry anywhere.
So in the meantime, if you are in the heat—stay cool, if you are a football fan—enjoy the final World Cup matches this week, and… don’t worry, I have lots to talk about once I stop sweating.
