...can be hot sometimes, and that's a good thing. But when you're talking about hot, as in HOT, as in just plain H-O-T, it's nothing but miserable and draining.
It's as hot as at least the upper depths of Hades here. I guess you can't really fry an egg on the sidewalk, but I wouldn't swear to it. I haven't put it to the test. What I do know is that we're enveloped in a hazy miasma of record-breaking heat. Yesterday's humid, 93-degree temperature broke the previous record of 86 degrees set back in 1962. And the 1958 record for this date (also 86) is slated to be broken today. It's October, and I'm still in Summer clothes with naked feet.
We're supposed to have a cold front en route which will drop the temps to the 60s by Thursday or so -- but I'll believe it when I see it. And even if it happens, what's to guarantee that it's not short-lived? I've been in flannel nighties under blankets several times over the past few weeks, but the heat always returns. It's been 70 at Christmas here before. If it's 80 or 90 this year, I swear I'm moving to Greenland -- where it might be only 70.
I don't know whether this unholy heat is evidence of global warming, naturally occurring climatic fluctuations, or Vikings plotting to sack the place. I don't care -- except for the possibility of Vikings (they can be rough and uncouth). All I know is that I'm really sick and tired of hot and am longing for some genuine Fall weather. If I have to be conquered by Vikings to get it, so be it. I want to wear some long sleeves, for God's sake. Is that too much to ask?
TWISTED LINGUISTICS picked up these Words Gone Wild today but is too damned hot and sweaty to define them. Have at them. Please!

All I can say to this test result is, "Ha-ha!"
