it’s really funny to see the brits coping with the current “heatwave”. it’s supposed to be about 22C today that’s about 72F…not exactly sweltering.

yesterday i heard it got up to 26C which would push it closer to 80F…still not exactly a heat wave by chicago standards.
but people were struggling…..getting out all that pale, pasty skin.
most people don’t seem to enjoy it at all, they walk around with a pained expression on their faces….and it doesn’t help that most places don’t have A/C.
i spent the day out and about yesterday, we had lunch at a chinese place and it was pretty uncomfortable…
one hint: there is a reason why people have drinks with lots of ice in the summertime!!!
okay, that’s the funny part, the sad part??
i’m one of them now!
