I’ve never tried surfing! I’ve tried wakeboarding (epic fail) and snowboarding (epic fail); really, the sliding-while-balancing genre of sports just don’t seem to be meant for me.
It’s the solstice today, so summer is officially starting here in the northern hemisphere, but we’ve had some days over 110°F here in Arizona since the beginning of the month. It’s such a different kind of heat than Florida was; out there, you step out of the house and you’re instantly soaked and sticky from the humidity. Here, it’s like you walk out into a convection oven. I sweat less, but it still isn’t exactly paradise. (The non-summer months make up for it, though. I’d rather deal with 3 months of really hot here than the 8 months of chilly and drizzly we had in Seattle.)
Final thought: So many cartoons of the sun have it wearing sunglasses. What’s that all about?
