Heatwave

Sitting in my crock pot, simmering. You can’t even imagine.

Look here mister, I grew up in the south. I know all about heat. I cut my teeth on swamp heat, which is about twice what your average African heat can deliver.

Don’t even lecture me on what it takes to have a hot time. I’ve already been there, already done that.

Yeah, yeah… but it’s really hot.

The image of me sitting in a crock pot is actually pretty accurate.

My apartment has one small window unit, recently installed in the Batcave and that’s about it. I put it there a few weeks ago after the last bout of heart-pumping madness and now I’m glad I made the effort.

Sucks to be poor.

The workday is going to be rough. Fighting monsters is hard enough but being stifled from the massive waves of heat while doing it just adds to the mix. In a bad way.

I think it’s interesting how we all do these little battles, depending on where we are and what the situation happens to be. While I might be locked in a deadly battle with the heat monsters, someone else on the other side of the world probably has cold problems.

If you’re well-off, loaded to the gills, you’ve probably never considered how restricting the elements can really be. Why would you? Your life doesn’t let you near them.

All things to all people, in good measure.

Have a great day, live long and prosper!

  1. It’s strange how some people never consider how simple things like the elements and hunger can affect a person. My husband always says, “a person can do anything they want if they have money. Unfortunately, that just ain’t us.”

    • I agree. I’m doing well enough to get by, but I’ll never be ‘well-off’. I’ll always be scraping just to get by. No house or vacation or country club membership in my future, that’s for sure.

  2. One of the many ways my son is like his dad, is he doesn’t like to be overly warm. I refuse to turn on the air conditioning as long as open windows and ceiling fans cool the rooms enough. My house is shielded from the worst of the sun by huge Oak trees. I broke down and said that if he paid the power bill, he could get a window unit for his room. He jumped on that one. Now he keeps his room at a temperature Mr. Freeze would be at home in, and thanks to a gap at the top of the door, he shares the wealth with that end of the house. He also complains a bit when he has to leave his room for any reason but he’ll be fine. I’m a southern girl, accustomed to southern heat, who has worked in a textile plant with an air cooling unit that always went out in the hottest part of the summer- this ole gal is tough 😉
