RevGalBlogPals: hot hot hot friday five
Many areas of the United States are having a heat wave. Global warming, anyone? Look on the bright side of melting glaciers and enviro-destruction by taking a crack at the Friday Five:
1. What's the high temperature today where you are? 93 is the predicted temperature with storms coming.
2. Favorite way(s) to beat the heat. Swimming in the lake, pool, or ocean, but mostly staying inside with the air conditioner and reading a good book.
3. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity." Evaluate this statement. This is a Southern saying and it is the truth, you can be hot, but the humidity will drag you down, ruin a haristyle, make clothes go limp, makeup run, make you tired and worn out, nothing will dry, and thus it makes the heat feel worse than it is. Football teams from areas that are not use to the humidity will just be wet rags and expereince muscle cramps in the game, and then the local team will win.
4. Discuss one or more of the following: sauna, hot tub, sweat lodge, warm-stone massage. I'll say this it is too hot for any of these right now. I don't like sauna's because I feel like I being smothered. I do like being in a hot tub with my hubby. Will not do a sweat lodge for same reason as sauna. dont' know a thing about warm-stone massage, don't know that i want to. Most often prefer the regular kind of massage, and not the quickie that President Bush did to the Chancellor of Germany at the G-8 conference.
5. Hottest you've ever been in your life I don't think I am hot commodity, but if you are talking about living in heat, working in heat, it was the summer of Junior year of College. I was serving as a Summer Missionary in the Panhandle of Florida, not on the beach though. We would stay in their homes and work in their churches doing vbs, youth, children, whatever they needed us to do. At one of the very small churches, we stayed in a very small travel trailer with no air conditioner, no fan, and no air circulation. I and the other college student got heat exposure. It was one of the hottest summers ever and HUMID. We both thought we would die. In fact neither one of us served as summer missionaries again after that, and prior to that I had served every year. It was a great experience and it was part of how I discovered God had been calling me and preparing me to be a minister.
Non-temperature related bonus: In your opinion... who's hot? I really can't say, I don't get to see movies, I don't get to watch movie videos or listen to music, I don't even get to watch the entertainment news to know. So I would have to say my husband Bob is hot.
As always, let us know if you play--and those of you who are linking directly to your posts? You're hot. And cool.
