July

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.

I have been eating so many mango popsicles. At those times of night too. And drinking cup after cup of ice water.
