Friday 5 - HOT!

I got this picture from here.
RevGalBlogPals Friday five!

1. What's the high temperature today where you are?
According to weather.com - about 97 degrees - that's a lie - it will get hotter. Heat index has been over 110 most days here.
Update: 6 pm - this afternoon - I saw a thermometer register 105. Heat Stroke weather.... where's the relief? Oh yeah, that will be December.

2. Favorite way(s) to beat the heat.
Well, being in A/C is a good way, but a BETTER way is a cranberry slushie from Sonic - which I did the other day. Oh a nice swim is pretty good too, but the swimming pools are over 90 degrees right now. Anyone have a HuGE ice cube?

3. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity." Evaluate this statement.
Ever cut room temperature butter with a knife?
Better yet, ever walk on pavement so hot that it is starting to soften?
Physically the humidity can be so oppressive that when you take a breath, you think, OH MY GOODNESS, get me in some air conditioning!!!!!

4. Discuss one or more of the following: sauna, hot tub, sweat lodge, warm-stone massage.
Sauna - well just go outside
hot tub - any swimming pool right now in "these here parts"
sweat lodge? WHAT? IS? THAT?
Warm stone massage - well that feels mighty fine.... in COLD WEATHER - hmmmm that happens 3-4 days a year around that

5. Hottest you've ever been in your life
I got so hot one time I threw up. It was on the square in town during the Prom's promenade - all the town shows up - I walked up town to see the festivities - started getting sick - and I knew it was the heat. Walked home..drank a ton of water.... threw up.
Ok revgals, you asked.. you got it.

Non-temperature related bonus: In your opinion... who's hot?
My husband - see? that's my right answer! :)

Too cool. I love it. Don't love the throwing up though.

Ooh Sonic does a Cherry-lime one too. I just can't understand how people functioned before ai-conditioning came to the south.

I played but have to wait until I get home to post as my work computer doesn't allow me to mess with type (haven't figured out why yet!) Thanks for inviting me!
