L-A: sweetjesusinabreadbasket. It is hot. It caused M.Dubs to text me the following:
it is hotter than Dutch love in my house.
I don’t know exactly what that means, but I do know that it means hot. The rising heat is reminding me of when M and I lived in Ghana together. At least you expected the heat and humidity there. It was sub-Saharan West Africa. Of course it is hot! But this? This is far north of the Sahara. Usually, when I go to the beach around here, I dip my toes in and complain that they are numb. Tonight, I was swimming and enjoying every minute of it. That means “warm” water people.
I am dying here. An email about shearling jackets this afternoon caused me to sweat just thinking about having anything fleece near my skin.
Of course, I am trying real hard not to complain about it (other than the above whine). Because I know this will all end soon enough. Hell, that warm water might just get us a Hurricane Earl this weekend (which, I don’t know, would be a little bit fun. I love a good storm).
Anyway, I’m trying to get through the day looking relatively cute and not a complete sweaty rumpled mess (which I was today). Because, what I really want my summer weather wardrobe to look like is what you see on the girls towards the end of this video:
Instead it’s unravelling into this:
Not cool. Not even a little bit. (p.s. I don’t actually watch Big Brother, but I know enough about it that it’s my go-to place for questionable things).
Any suggestions? Is it even possible to look cute when it’s 35 degrees + humidity? Or do I just have to sweat it out until mid-September. And seriously, suggestions welcome: because I’m going back to school on Tuesday and would like to have something cute to wear. (Remember when I was in a lousy mood the other day? Lousy mood banished!). Sweaty mess is not the way to make a good first impression.
