Recently we've been experiencing the drought of all droughts. Yes, we did have a few rain showers but nothing to write home about.
Naturally with a drought of such epic proportions, the heat has been unbearable.
By early morning (6am) it is steamy and the heat does not go away after sundown. Days of unbearable heat and nights of sweating profusely in front of the fan driven breeze.
It's awful and everyone is complaining.
I try to make sure that Brownie is comfortable since his body is covered in hair and I'm sure this makes the heat even worse for him.
His panting scares me a bit because it seems as if his body is overloaded when he pants as if he's ready to drop down with heat exposure. No more days of throwing Big Blue Rat for him to chase because I don't want him exerting himself unnecessarily.
The garden is suffering terribly, my outdoor chores are non-existent, so are the indoor chores for that matter.
It's just too hot to do anything....I can't even think for the heat.
I worry about those construction workers who have to bear the heat to get their jobs done in the outdoors.
Darn, it's 6.18am as I write this and I am HOTTTTT!!!
My friends and I have been having the most animated conversations about the heat, some too crude to mention here, but suffice to say that the ladies are now "panty-less" most of the time and the guys are showing off their physiques in the buff as they strut around their homes doing whatever it is that guys do.
After one of these animated conversations with one of my guy friends last night, he sent me a Whatsapp message with the image below.
Makes a whole lot of sense to me now....it really does.
