|Weather forecast: HOT|
Summer, as most of the country knows summer, has changed me.
I have developed a love/hate relationship with air conditioning. When it's been over 90 degrees for the last several days you kind of need it, but something about the recycled, dehumidified, Arctic blasts our window unit puts out causes my sinuses to freeze up. I need air, not processed air-like emissions. Give me some old-fashioned marine influence over a freon-induced gas any day. And while many people like the white noise effect of the air conditioner, having that hum going all night gives me weird dreams. Jets landing on my house, robots taking over the world, and polar bears playing shuffleboard do not make for peaceful dreams. Of course, neither does roasting like a pig in a blanket.

I am physically and emotionally done with summer and heat and all that it entails. If next year is anything like this year, I'm moving to Iceland. Do you know how warm it is in Iceland right now? Forty-six degrees. I bet they had to put on a sweater when they went outside. And it's supposed to rain there tomorrow.
