RULES FOR KEEPING COOL DURING A HEAT WAVEMy dad, the philosopher...
(from an ol’ desert rat):
Rule #1: Do not complain about how hot it is. It won’t do any good and will only make you feel hotter.
Rule #2: As much as possible, do not even talk about how hot it is.
Rule #3: Try not to even think about how hot it is.
Rule #4: Remember how miserably cold and wet you were last winter (and probably will be next winter).
Rule #5: Imagine how nice this temperature is compared to how it will be when Global Warming really sets in.
Rule #6: Remember the Rules for Life in the Military (see below).
RULES FOR LIFE IN THE MILITARY
(from an ol’ sea dog):
Do not run when you can walk.
Do not walk when you can stand still.
Do not stand when you can sit.
Do not sit when you can lie down.
Do not stay awake when you can go to sleep.
