Today is dangerously hot for me in the sun.Like, I could die. I’m very prone to heat exhaustion, and it’s not a far stretch from there to heat stroke.

And it occurred to me, I bet there were a lot less fat people before air conditioning was invented.

Without AC, I’d have to lose weight or die.

Or move north.

There is Time

Me: “If we budget for it, could we do Europe next summer?”

Wonderful Wife: “I’d love to do Europe!”

Danger Monkey, age 9: “No, we can’t go to Europe.”

Me: “Why is that?”

DM: “I haven’t learned Old Norse yet.”


Me: “I love you, little viking dude.”
