Today is probably the hottest day we have had since, well, ever. It is brutal. Strangely, the thermometer doesn't seem to agree, but I did see the glass melting and the mercury draining out the bottom, that may have something to do with it.
I asked a friend of mine how hot it was. He replied, "Oh its a hundred and..."
So here's the thing. Once it gets beyond 100 degrees it is no longer weather, it's cooking. Seriously, the difference between 104 and 116 is just this: At 104 you wish you would die; at 116 you actually do. I prefer 116 because at least that way the pain stops.
I think, in a god forsaken country like this, a much better way to measure temperature is how long it would take to cook something, like say, a turkey.
The temperature today is about 48 minutes.
