This morning, I heard on the news that we here in Phoenix were in for a big cool-down. Yes, today saw a high of a mere 92 degrees. 92 degrees. Two weeks ago, if you had told me that I’d be happy to hear it would be 92 degrees outside, I’d have kicked you in the balls. But today, well… I was thrilled. I don’t think you understand the heat here. When you open the door to leave a building, it is exactly the same sensation as opening an oven. That hot wind of hell blowing right in your face… only you can’t escape it. It surrounds and stifles you. Who actually chooses to live here?
I think I’m officially old. On that same news program, they did a story about a local high school which featured interviews with several high school junior and senior girls. Here’s the thing: I thought they were hot. Every single last one of them was hot. Now, when I was actually in high school, I don’t remember thinking every girl classmate was hot. The only conclusion I can draw is that I was attracted to their youth, which makes me a dirty old man, Holy God. I’ll be 26 next month. My 20’s, the presumed “best part of my life”, are more than half over. I can’t even write about this now… we’ll return to this topic as my birthday approaches.
I’m reading Cujo this week. I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t know how it ends, but so far the most emotion it’s illicited from me is a profound sadness for the poor, rabid dog. 🙁
P.S. This weekend is scheduled to see record highs… 108 degrees on Sunday. Thank merciful Allah that I won’t be here to see it.
P.P.S. This is, by far, the most boring entry I’ve left in a while. And I realize that. But you read it anyway. Sucker.
