This is all I have to say today.

It’s Hot!

It’s hot!
I can’t get cool,
I’ve drunk a quart of lemonade! 
I think I’ll take my shoes off
and sit around in the shade.

It’s hot!
My back is sticky,
The sweat rolls down my chin.
I think I’ll take my clothes off
And sit around in my skin.

It’s hot!
I’ve tried with ‘lectric fans,
And pools and ice cream cones.
I think I’ll take my skin off
And sit around in my bones.

It’s still hot!

  2. We don't even have AC! I just drink a lot of ice water and iced coffee at this point. And have both our fans running nonstop. Today I threatened to go spend the night at a hotel just so I can sit in a room with the AC turned down to, like, 70 degrees.
