It's so hot. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know some of you in Arizona are thinking "Pf. She doesn't even know hot." And that's ok. You can think that. I think the same thing in the winter when you say it's "freezing" and it's 40 degrees. Ha!
But for Michigan, this is the hard month. It's supposed to be 103 degrees today with one BAZILLION percent humidity. Or at least, it will feel that way. You walk outside and feel like you're being steamed to death.
As Megan Amram said, "It's not you, it's me." - Humidity, to Heat
Ok, I'll stop being over dramatic.
Last night I lay in bed worrying about the heat today. Mainly because I love being outside but when I get too hot I turn into a monster. A ragey monster. That made me wonder: for all the complaining I do about winter, can I tolerate cold better than heat....?
Who am I....? I am having a slight identity crisis right now. It's not that I necessarly LIKE winter more than summer (that would be crazy talk) but maybe I can deal with it better? I mean, you can layer as many clothes as you want, but you can only take off so many, you know what I mean?
What about you? I'm not asking which season you LIKE more, but which season's weather can you tolerate more?
I'll leave you with a Robert Frost poem I memorized in middle school:
Fire and Ice
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if I had to parish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great,
and would suffice.
It applies; don't over think it.
So which is it? Hot or cold? Which is more tolerable? Your comments are important. I'm going to send them to the Library of Congress once they're all in. Yep, this poll is that official.*
*this is the heat talking.
