thursday 13

This week: In honor of summer and 90 degree weather being right around the corner, 13 things you do to stay cool.

  1. I don’t wear jeans after the first 85 degree day. Denim is hot as heck.
  2. Libraries are especially air-conditioned because books (and computers) hate heat and humidity, so I think I chose wisely as far as professions go, as far as keeping cool is concerned.
  3. Lots of dresses. And when I can’t do a dress, chinos. (Chinos are lighter weight fabric than jeans, so I don’t feel as sweaty in them.)
  4. Sweet tea, lemonade, iced coffee, water.
  5. Despite the superstitions of my homeland, I sleep with the ceiling fan turned on blast.
  6. The occasional gin and tonic outside on my porch. (And also maybe white wine.)
  7. POPSICLES (I bought a popsicle mold last year and never used it; time to fix that this year.)
  8. Beach.
  9. Air conditioning in the car on the highest setting.
  10. Movies at the movie theater.
  11. Rinsing off with cold water at the end of showers. (This is apparently supposed to be good for one’s hair, too.)
  12. You know those little paper folding fans? I kind of want to get a whole bunch and just carry them around in my purse.
  13. Sometimes, though, you have to just give up and embrace the heat, which ends up happening anytime I’m outside for more than ten minutes.
