Top 10 Signs That It's Really Really Hot Out!



1. You get a delivery and the items in the box are so hot you can't even grab hold of them to put them away....
2. Your delicious ice pop that you savor at home in the air conditioning melts as fast as if you were eating it outdoors in the sun...
3. You must do all your errands before 9 am or it will be too hot to be on the street...
4. You can't even imagine going somewhere cool because it would involve getting there, and unless you have a private air conditioned chauffeur, you can't even fathom the bus or subway...
5. It's as bad out at 11pm as it is at 11 am.
6. All you want for dinner are cold cucumbers, a bucket of ice, and tons of ice cream....
7. You have a new appreciation for the post office (see previous blog, "Why I Don't Live at the P.O."). It has the best air conditioning within a one block radius from home of any place I've been. Stamps, anyone?
8. Forget cooking an egg on the sidewalk - you could actually sautee a whole stir fry meal!
9. Your plastic metro card case is starting to melt in your wallet, and your loose change is burning a hole in your pocket - literally.
10. Everyone on the street is walking around with stupid looking little umbrellas attached to their heads and you say to yourself, "why didn't I think of that?"
