I’ve Never Been So Hot…And Not In A Good Way

Standard
Yes this is real, and I took it.  Right before I burst into flames.

Yes this is real, and I took it. Right before I burst into flames.

So, the only thing worse than surviving a week-long, record breaking heatwave in Phoenix…is having your air conditioning die right in the middle of it.  Four days and three repairmen later…we’re finally back in our house.

Me: I’m no longer a vagrant!

Ryan: Yea!  Did you lower the thermostat to 72, just because you can?

Me: The house is finally down to 84, I’m trying not to push it too fast.

Ryan: I had a brand new unit go out once, and the house got up to 95.  The cats weren’t happy.

Me: I’m guessing because the fur?

Ryan: I tried to get them wet, but they didn’t like it.

Me: I’m gonna go ahead and let you reread that last sentence to yourself.

  1. Good bloody god… Did he try to drop the cats in cold water? No wonder they didn’t like it. And probably wanted to take some of his skin along once they were done with him. 😀

    122? That’s insane! I was at Hoover Dam when I was a kid and it was 115 and my sister fainted. Hot cats can be a problem. Did he try putting an ice cube in their water bowl?

    • AND IT WAS HUMID! Not like 90% humid, but in the high 30s-40s, which, for us, is friggin’ ridiculous. Everybody was being an asshole last week. And with cause.
