Bot & Hothered …errrr or should I say Hot & Bothered ? Lol in this heat who knows ? Who cares? After days on end of temps 30c+ and now into the 40’s c it is too easy to get things wrong and not realise it right away . The mind gets a bit muddled and the brain addled as the body cooks , lol so it is to be expected that it gets more difficult to even think much less get anything productive done . My way of thinking is that if we could just have temps around 25c all the time that would be lovely and the poor body could at least make the effort to try to keep up with the things that need doing . Then we would not be mixing up our words and might even ret ti gight …. maybe who knows lol ? Also to have any rain we needed , have that at night when most people are in bed ( or should be lol ) that would be just right I think anyway …
When it gets this hot for long periods we do tend to do things we do not usually do to try and get some relief , like wandering around half dressed or seek out places that have air con and stay too long just to keep out of the heat . Now also true of trying to escape is when the weather is way too cold for way too long , that has the same effect on the body and brain and mind , as they try to compensate for the conditions . So it seems as I said in a recent blog the weather controls us more than we think , or more than we like but we can do nothing but learn to live with it and keep on going , giving up is not in my vocabulary so I just work out what is what . Brain freeze is about as annoying as heat boilover , either way the mind temporarily loses the plot and makes for some interesting things and ways of talking as it tries to make sense out of something it has no control over. Though lol mind you I know some people that lost the plot years ago and still don’t realise it …
What then is your way of overcoming these things ? How many times have you said something , then stopped and laughed as you realised you said those words all wrong , like spoonerisms but still wrong , like I did with the title and beyond . The very fact that we stop and laugh means we have not really lost the plot we just got it mixed up with the plot from the detective series on Tv at the time , lol that is my excuse anyway . When this happens I just stop , giggle, then say what I meant to say at the time . This kind of thing happens to everyone though it is amazing how many people do not admit it , thinking that people might think they have lost their minds , when in fact it just means the brain is working just fine and just had a case of the hiccups we all get them too .
At least these days there are a lot of ways to combat the weather , we have heaters and air con and fans and all sorts of things to help so usually it is not too big a deal . Right now right here it is fans on , windows open, feet in cold water, cold water with ice blocks to cool down and prevent dehydration , well that is what we are doing right now , poor fridge is getting a right work out with cold water and ice blocks as quick as it can get them ready . When we can we head off to a cafe or the pub for meals and cool drinks , but more importantly to use their air con lol . All these places have air con way better than anything we could have or even afford so it makes sense to use them as I see it , you get more comfortable and have a good meal and chat with friends , win, win I say .
When the weather goes all wrong , well wrong to the way we like it we do all sorts of funny things to make ourselves feel better , not all of us have the time or the money to go out boating or swimming or anything as exciting as we would like to do so we make do , and just do the best we can and usually it works , unless the power goes off ..lol then Houston we have a problem lol and a big 1 at that as it makes all attempts to make ourselves more comfortable impossible but as long as it is not for too long it is ok but if power is out too long then we are in trouble ….lol… now what was it I said about weather being in control ?lol shhhh Don’t tell the power ….or it might get in a huff and go out and we can only do so much with batteries ….lol
