Sweat and more sweat

Sweat 1: If you haven't been following the weather reports or been outside, it is an understatement of the worst kind to simply say that it is really, really hot here in DC. It's like an instant sauna outside - just add a human being.

Sweat 2: Something possessed me to go back to the gym tonight. I'm not sure what, and I'm just hoping it can be exorcised without much effort. Here's what I learned: wandering around Israel for the past two months does not prepare one (in this case, me) for walking on a treadmill at 3 miles per hour at a small incline. I won't even mention the elliptical machine....

The other thing I learned though, is that however hot you think you are in the gym after working out, it's nothing compared to the heat you find when you walk out the door to the parking lot.

(but if you open the windows and drive fast enough, you get a small, warm breeze that actually feels cool, since you're soaking wet!)

Does ANYONE out there in cyberspace have any idea why in 2006 - someone who is HOT wouldn't enjoy.....AIR CONDITIONING?

You raised her.

That doesn't answer the question.....It's a real puzzlement.

Joan--I mean, anonymous--you're supposed to answer with something clever, like "Well, you married her."

As for the puzzlement, I have known the woman to opt for conditioned air under the right circumstances.

Perhaps her mother enjoyed too much air conditioning before she was born, resulting in her aversion - somewhat on the order of an allergy after an abundance of something has been consummed.....

I really like the 11:19 a.m. comment. Also, congratulations on the one that follows it, Andrea: I believe your site has just received its first bona fide spam!
