Life in the Oasis

That’s Fahrenheit, Baby

2 Comments

Mid-afternoon.  Dogs napping on the tile floor.  Finished a can of Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray.  Took a break from editing latest project.  Walked past the thermostat:

Not sure if the air temperature really is 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  Looks suspicious.  Raised eyebrow.  So — rinsed the empty can of Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray, left it in the sink to drain, and walked past the thermostat again:

 

Well, that was apparently bogus.

Then, in a matter of seconds — mere seconds — the thermostat registered eight less degrees.  I saw it with my own eyeballs.  No photograph of that; I don’t want to put you, my readers, into a whirly spin.  Believe me.  Today’s world is too nuts as it is.

It’s just too, too much–

One hundred degrees.

One hundred four degrees.

Ninety-six degrees.

That’s Fahrenheit, Baby.

Up and up and down.  And so goes the thermometer.

Truthfully, though it was hot, hot, hot today, I don’t think the 104 degrees Fahrenheit was legitimate.

Sure, maybe for a hot second it was, but not in the grand scheme of the afternoon.

A hot breeze — a diablo wind — could have boosted that temperature momentarily.

But, what do I care?  Baby, it’s hot outside.

And I’m inside, working up a sweat working on a big editing project.

  1. The only place I’m likely to see that temperature today is in the oven, lucky you 🌞
