Sweltering, Oppressive, Scorching and Sizzling

Sweltering, airless, baking, broiling, burning, close, fiery, humid, oppressive, perspiring, scorching, sizzling, stewing, sticky, stifling, stuffy, sultry, sweaty, sweltry, torrid...

Ever notice that, as you are slumped in your seat trying not to move because any little bit of exertion will make you pass out, the weather reporter always uses one of these words?

The heat is bad enough without hearing such adjectives. As soon as one of these words is mentioned inevitably your head starts to emanate more heat, your brow pops new beads of sweat causing the ones there before to cascade down your face.

You can feel the back of your neck heat up as if you had wrapped a scarf around it. You suddenly feel the urge to stand under a shower of ice cold water. You want to feel the chill of a half frozen bottle of water on your lips.

But you sit. And you sweat. Weak and miserable.

It's too damn hot to stand up right now...

I'm so glad that I work at night and am able to sleep in my air conditioned apartment during the hottest part of the day. Don't melt on to the sidewalk up north there.

I'm glad I'm off right now-on Tuesday I didn't go out until after 9pm-and it was bad then

Don't worry, be Happy

spunky...at work I might as well be outside! Its almost 90 degrees in there! No windows and a dinky fan. But the owner of the dealership called the AC guy and they're fixing it NEXT friday! So we must suffer another week of this hell. At least he's gonna bring a big industrial type fan from home...you got any extra paper weights??

gossip...Damn woman I dont even have AC at home I walked 3 blocks to the store yesterday and I damn near DID melt. HORRIBLE!

free...I'd stay indoors as much as possible. I hardly even venture to the front of the building for a smoke! At night its just as bad!
