Subject: It's sooooo hot...

                                                     It's Soooo Hot:

The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The trees are whistling for the dogs.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
Hot water now comes out of both taps.
You can make sun tea instantly.
You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
The temperature drops below 35 C (95 F) and you feel a little chilly.
You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 am.
Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper, and, of course, sour cream, diced onions and a few serving spoons of chile.
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.


(Thanks Jolynn for the forward..)

I live in the deserts of AZ. My husband and I went out to dinner the other night because it was just too hot to cook at home. When we arrived to the Olive Garden it was funny to see commercial dish towels wrapped around their metal exterior door handles so that their guests would not burn their hands opening the door.

Funny stuff! I especially like the one about the trees whistling for the dogs.

It has been really hot here, too, also humid! When my husband mows the lawn, there's not a dry thread on him when he finishes. I should really help him. . . maybe not!
