Dear Weather, [Aug. 8th, 2007|08:21 am]

Dear Weather,

When I said "Oh, can't really complain, July was so benevolent. Even when it was hot, it was slightly breezy and evenings even milder. Even if it gets hot now, there's only 4 weeks left to it, really."

THAT WAS NOT A TRIPLE DOG DARE.

For starters, I'm a liar. I ALWAYS reserve the right to complain. Plus, if I can't see the end of the street at midnight due to the excessive humidity, THAT, my friend is a violation of fair play.

I have a wedding to go to this weekend and I will NOT tolerate this weather.

(Note to my friends: wedding in August, bad idea. Unless shorts, t-shirts, bluegrass bands, a boat, watermelon and a pair of young men who think older women are hawt (wait, no, strike that last one, I'm on the wagon.) are involved, bad idea.)

While I'm admonishing friends -- those of you who have fingers poised to send me a message that's anything like "If you think THIS is hot..." just stop. I've been in New Orleans in August and September. I've been in Florida in August, with a broken air conditioner for three days. There's a reason why I won't live farther south than Maryland, okay? VIRGINIA is too damn hot for me. Besides, the heat is making me exceptionally crabby, so don't poke this polar bear with a stick right now.

But think of the culinary adventure of preparing a saute of vegetables on a concrete sidewalk?

The engine block works better, and in some cases is pre-greased.

Dear Weather

Wilted salad, fresh (?)from the garden. Or, a whole "wilted" dinner! Is there such a thing wilted chicken? wilted beans? all cooked on the steamy sidewalks of K-town!

Awggg, you are right, it's terrible out there. Can hardly breath. So very grateful for air-conditioning!

Not the drinking wagon...perish the thought! Just the boy wagon, on account of having one worth keeping.

Silly rabbit, paws off my rum. Fetch can show you what happened to the last rum-stealing rabbit....
