In our moderate to the extreme climate
a day such as today
with its temp. in the mid-70s
causes us to plumb wilt away.
Those experiencing degrees such as 117
would stand aghast and wonder how this could be.
82? Oh, the horror! How do you carry on?
But we’ll just start up a new chain gang song
and weep like Job on a not so merry day.
“Honey! Come look!!”
“What is it? Are you alright?”
“My forehead is wet! Should I take something for it?”
“Here, have a seat and a glass of iced tea. I think it
may be sweat, but to be safe I’ll Google it.
Better yet, I’ll check Web MD.”
