|Unknown young man taking a siesta at Walmart this morning|
OMG! I just read the temperature and it says 102 degrees! OMG! No wonder I was feeling faint after planting a few flowers. My tee shirt was soaked to my skin. I just took Shower Number Two for the day.
This morning Bill and I took off real early for the Walmart in Rehoboth. I had a few items to pick up and I didn't fancy fighting the heat and traffic later in the day. At 7:30 the temps were already in the 90's. And the humidity, let me tell you I don't know how ANYONE can stand living in Florida during the summer. I would be knocked out just like this guy was at the entrance to the Walmart this morning.
I'm showered, cooled off and in the house now and this is where I plan to stay the rest of the day. I don't want to make this a Three Shower Day like Thursday. Yes folks, I took THREE showers Thursday after my friend Lar came down for his annual birthday celebration. I treat him to lunch and an old timer photo. Perhaps you saw it, we were pirates this year. Me with that big goofy hat. I better stick to cowboys in any future old timer photo shoots. I can pull that off better with my grizzled old look that I'm stuck with now. Oh fleeting youth, where have you gone?
I'm not scheduled to go into work until Wednesday. The operative word here is "scheduled." Don't even bother calling me Mike (my manager) when my fellow part-timer calls in with her latest emergency. I say "No" this time. It's not easy for me to say "No" but sometimes it is necessary when the extra effort is not appreciated and I'm looked upon as a fool. The worm turns.
Stay cool folks!
