FB Status Update

Sooooooo... I was trying to rehydrate some dried potting soil so I could transplant my chastity cactus (aka aloe plant) into a bigger pot.  The sound of the soil absorbing the water was beautiful, so I leaned over the container and just listened to the hundreds of gentle little trickles. 

B: (finishing sweeping in the kitchen) Katie, what are you DOING?
K: I'm listening to the water being absorbed.
B: Weirdo.
K: If I had white noise like this, I would sleep like a baby every night.  A tired baby.
B: Ok I think it's time for a FB status update...

On nights like tonight, there IS no cool side of the pillow.  No cool spot on the sheets, because the bed, the sheets come pre-warmed for you from the day's penetrating heat. 

You lie in front of the fan spritzing your entire body with water every three minutes or so.  And you fill your water bottle with ice, snuggle with it.  Eat a mango popsicle at 12:00 midnight, because what else are you going to do?

What else are you going to do?  SLEEP??? 

Not likely, friend.
