A melting human

So I’m pretty sure it really IS possible for a human to melt.

Like the wicked witch off the Wizard of Oz, only without the pointy hat and the whole being-a-witch thing. I’m melting! Melting! (If you click on the link, fast forward to about 3 minutes and 15 seconds to see the melting scene. Because who wouldn’t want to see a witch melt?)

I know, I know. I’ve been whining and grousing about the heat lately, but you guys! Our air conditioner quit working yesterday evening.

As in, dead. Bereft of life. Pushing up daisies. Defunct.

Our air conditioner went to meet it’s maker. Probably the devil himself, considering the shoddy job it did cooling our house as it was. But still… it kept it cooler than it is right now.  And believe it or not, we can’t just go out and grab another one because the only ones the stores nearby have in stock are crappy, cheap little air conditioners that would be a waste of money and wouldn’t cool our house. We have to ORDER it and have it SHIPPED. Which takes days. DAYS. I’ll probably be roasted by then. Completely cooked.

Just give me a pitch fork and a pointed tail and I’ll fit right into my environment.

Yes, I know. People in Australia and other parts of the world would totally scoff at me right about now. But I admit it, I am a TOTAL WUSS when it comes to uncomfortable heat. I guess you could say I am addicted to air conditioning. So keep your collective fingers crossed for us. Here’s to hoping we can get some relief and SOON!



  1. So your survival might depend on cold showers, ice baths, and or popcicles?! The popcicle part might be good!

  2. I grew up in Taiwan and when I went back in Feb (WINTER!) I was sweating like a pig, running around in short sleeved when everybody was bundled up. I got a lot of dirty looks. I told my mom there is no way I am going back in the summer. She had to agree. Plus, it’s just very un-ladylike to be drenched in sweat the way I am. Sorry your AC broke. Put your shirt in the freezer and wear it after half an hour? Elly told me her tip: She puts her running shoes in the freezer too!

    • LOL! I can just see you wearing summer clothes when everyone else is wearing thick coats and mittens! I admit, when I see people doing that (wearing summer clothes in the middle of winter), I have to wonder if they are halfway crazy!! That’s just too funny. Great idea about the shirt and the shoes!! I totally hate sweating and being all sticky and uncomfortable.
