I had failed to leave my windows cracked open yesterday. When I got to my car after work the thermometer read 107°, and “oven” was an apt description for how it felt! We all know, of course, that standing temps are higher than actual temps, so it was no surprise that it dropped once the air was running and I started driving. It drop to 103°.
So I’ve been debating about todays entry to Marie’s “Celebrating the Ordinary” challenge, but with an eye to the most simple, ordinary choice, I will go with: SHADE.
Being the fan of anthropology that I am, I’ve often considered what it must have meant for my So Cal predecessors who lived here BC…before (air) conditioning. Global warming notwithstanding, it’s always been a desert! And so as I sit in the carpool line at my son’s school, I am deeply grateful that the middle school parents line up on the shady side of the driveway!!
