RULES FOR KEEPING COOL DURING A HEAT WAVEThis is so typical of my parents' relationship...my dad's all about suffering in silence, my mom is all about commiseration.
(From a California Girl):
Rule #1. DO complain about how hot it is. It makes you feel better admitting how miserable you are and sharing the misery.
Rule #2. As much as possible, do talk about it! That's how you find out how others cope with the heat.
Rule #3. Go to the Mall. It's so cool there and shopping is so therapeutic.
Rule #4. Go to the movies and wear something cute.
Rule #5. Turn on your air conditioning or all of your fans and sit next to an ice cold pitcher of margaritas. AAAHHHH!
I love my parents.
