I’ve been congratulating myself on not getting my annual sunburn, but today I got my annual heat exhaustion. It’s a fun summer tradition! I start wondering why everyone is being so annoying, and then I stand up and everything is dark and weird, because I will never learn to drink water BEFORE that happens.
Why, self? Why is heat always a freaking surprise? Why can’t I notice when I feel a little bad and drink water, instead of being totally oblivious to all body signals until I’m feeling completely gross?
Pretty much whenever I am really annoyed, the reason is that I’m getting sick or run down. But I never make the connection that, hmm, maybe every single person ISN’T trying to be extra useless and irritating, maybe I need a.nap.
Anyway I’m in the A/C now, with feet up and lots of water. Having a body is very hard.
