...but it's a dry heat, they say. The swamp cooler is blowing sorta cool air, the dog is passed out on the bed in a direct line to get what cool air there is, I have my orthopedist appointment tomorrow, and I DO NOT want to wear that knee brace. I DO NOT want to cook anything for dinner, I DO NOT want to do dishes, or laundry, or anything else that expends energy. I DO NOT want to get in the car because it's hot in there. I DO NOT want to put on appropriate clothing to leave the house. Local news says we're on the second day of a two-week heat wave. And every year, I ask myself the same question..."WHY did I leave the Bay Area?"
