Of Glue and Oven-Mitts

It is much too hot for April. I hate to think what the summer will be like. Perhaps I shall take a very long vacation to Iceland...

I got a sunburn during my morning commute -- a twenty minute drive. This afternoon, after work, I discovered the rear-view mirror on the floor of the van. Apparently, the heat was so intense that the glue melted. The steering wheel was so hot I had to use a pair of gloves as oven mitts to drive.

If this heat pattern continues into the summer, I shall be in big trouble. People like me were not made for this sort of climate -- especially since I tan like a lobster.

Greenland is much colder. Makes no sense, really.
Have fun and send me a postcard. My dad loves the heat so I tell him I love it too.

Didn't read it all the way through before. Mom's mirror did that once, we were looking all over for the it. We even had a sun-blocker thing on at the time. It baffled us all. And the seats were litarally blistering.
"...tan like a lobster."
...Hahaha! I can't tan and I don't burn. I stay white as a sheet all summer. I was out almost all day every day last summer and all I had to show for it was some sweaty clothes. I never tan.
Anyway, maybe God wants you in Iceland or Antarctica or someplace cold, so He made you more adpated to the cooler weather.
Or mayber it's 2:30 a.m. and I need to stop making stupid theories and get to sleep.
Ciao until tomorrow. Or later today, actually.

With your north European background, I should think you go bright pink in summer.

God Bless

More like bright red... last year, I literally roasted in Mexico. Won't give the gory details, but I still have scars on my upper chest, back, and shoulders. Spaghetti straps are a bad idea - especially if you're on a white sandy beach. Ouch.

LOL, Madd. I tried tanning and I only go red and then white again... with the addition of freckles. Maybe God does want be to be in a colder climate... yay.

2:30 am? *chuckles* I stayed up that late couple nights ago. Hope you can sleep in. I had to wake up again at 6:00 am. Bad.

heh. I'm one of those blessed to burn once, and not for the rest of the year.

You should duct tape the mirror back up.

Dad is repairing it as I type. Hopefully he will have it done before I leave for school.

Global warming! Melting the glue? Looks like an infeno over there. Praise God for the Canada weather after all.

It is an inferno... and I live in NORTH Texas. The Texas/Mexico border region is even worse. It's a cross between roasted and steamed.
