I wrote this last August – you probably remember our hot spell. I am back home today. It was wonderfully cool and beautiful in Maine.
Anyway I will try to come up with some bon mots to rival the Jeff Foxworthy’s You Know You’re a Redneck when——
You know it’s hot when the greeters at Costco backup to halfway into the building.
You know it’s hot when you need gloves to drive your car.
You know it’s hot when your glasses fog up so much they drip.
You know it’s hot when your dog starts peeing inside- in your plants
You know it’s hot when your garden tomatoes burn the mouths of the squirrels
You know it’s hot when the glass beads in your necklace burn a hole in your blouse.
You know it’s hot when your flipflops stick to the parking lot.
You know its hot when Fedex warns of exploding bubblewrap.
You know it’s hot when you don’t need propane to cook on your grill
What would you add on . . .?
