How does the heat affect you?

July 4, 2015
heat

I'm sorry to say that the current tropical temperatures don't do my personality any favors...

Normally I'm friendly and courteous. But when it's tropical hot I feel this overwhelming urge to slap people in their face. Like when they're taking up all of the aisle space in the supermarket. Or when they're dawdling.

How the heat affects me



  1. It's really bad for my IQ. For example: please don't ask me how much 1 + 1 is. Because right now I can't tell you. But I thínk it's 3.
  2. It makes me cranky.
  3. It makes me impatient.
  4. It turns me into a slob because I simply can't be bothered to do the housekeeping.
  5. I don't feel like cooking anymore.
  6. It makes me feel sweaty and sticky and unpleasant in general.
  7. It makes me shout at the children when they fail to close the doors. Yet again. Letting all the heat into the house, and spoiling our last cool sanctuary!
  8. I sleep with an empty wine bottle I filled with water and put into the freezer.

How do you cope with the heat?

  1. Heat is the name of the game around here! I definitely get very cranky. My tolerance level for stupid just plummets. I also find that I am less motivated to do work. I just want to lie around and watch TV. I also will get bad headaches and feel woozy if I don't drink enough liquids. Great list. @ www.littlenerdfamily.com

  3. All of the above! Like Kristen Campbell(who is one of my friends), I live in FL.
    I don't drink wine, but I'm thinking I can find some kinda bottle to sleep with! What a brilliant idea! You may have just saved my life! Here from HomeMatters.

  4. Portland, Oregon has had a record hot summer. And we don't a/c because we don't have record hot summers. So many of your points hit me right between the eyes. At least that's the excuses I'm using. Thanks for sharing and making my morning !!!
