Hot, Hot, Hot

"Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it."
-Russel Baker

Summer’s coming, and the temperature’s rising. Outside, as well as literally inside our house. And we’ve chosen it to be that way. Rob and I are playing a little game, yes, it’s a game we’re playing with ourselves: “How long can we go without turning on the air conditioner?”

We played last year, and were amazed how cheap our electric bill was for May, so we decided to participate again. This is not an easy game to play in Atlanta, cause it’s already too darn hot here. Our main strategy is to open the windows, turn on the fans, and to limit the covers on the bed.

We’re trying to hold out through the month of May. Only four more days!! Hopefully I won’t melt before then.

  1. when we lived in texas, my husband and i would play tennis in the summer. IN THE SUMMER. and on the drive home, we'd engage in what we called "the great american sweatout." this entails rolling up all the windows, turning the heat full blast, and sweating until you've no tears left.

    those were the days. but oddly? we turned out ac on in march.
