Whew! It’s going to be a hot one which begs the question: shouldn’t clothes be optional?
Over the last 24 hours, I have received calls and texts from family and friends advising me to stay cool. At first, I didn’t think anything about it until the messages (well texts) became more frequent and ominous. So, the first thing I did upon waking was to check the weather forecast.
110 degrees? That can’t be right. So I checked it again and again on another site. Checked my thermostat which is ridiculous because it isn’t digital. Seriously, how is anyone supposed to read this thing? Then I started missing my cat. She would warn me if a storm was coming or if it was too hot in the house. My plants were useless. They thrive in hot weather and are probably looking forward to 3-digit temperatures over the next 72 hours.
Hmm. What to do?
Since starting Cheap Phone Sex with Cheryl I have become a de facto nudist. As I work from home the only time I wear clothes is when I leave the house. Which got me thinking. Shouldn’t clothes be optional?
Now hear me out. Thanks to climate change the world is getting hotter. People get a little crazed (and horny but that’s another story) when temperatures go up because they are so hot in their pants and pantyhose. Folks would be much cooler naked uh nude. Think about it. Crime would go down, everyone would save money on their electric bills and I could finally leave the house in my birthday suit. Sounds like a win to me.
But I digress …
Over the last year, I have had an iron deficiency problem. I know it doesn’t sound like a big deal but it can wreak havoc on your body. Normally I turn the air-conditioner on in March and don’t turn it off until November. However, due to this iron issue, I can’t handle the ac anymore. It’s too cold. So, this year unless I am cleaning the house and need a well-ventilated area I have barely turned on the cooling system which as you know includes the fan. My electric bill is so low y’all.
The point is I cannot feel the heat. I suggested to one of my friends that maybe I evolved and being able to withstand high temperatures is my new superpower. Yeah, she didn’t buy that either. As heat doesn’t seem to bother me I took some precautions yesterday by hydrating. Drank a gallon of water and by the end of the day, all I could do was lay on my back like a fat tick. It worked though. Now the trick is to stay hydrated.
Earlier I closed all the windows and turned on the ac. 40 minutes later I was freezing my tootsies off. Whenever I complain to my friends about how cold it is they suggest I should put on some clothes. My response is always, “It is not that cold.” So, I compromise and begrudgingly put on socks. So there you have it. When you call and ask what I’m wearing – a pair of white socks.
Oh, didn’t I tell you? In phone sex clothing is always optional. Now if only that were true for the rest of the world. Sigh.
