The Heat is ON

To catch a fountain . .  Posted by Hello

It' so friggin hot in the Metro!

As in so scrochingly hot.

Sometimes I do envy all you peeps working in your air-conditioned rooms, sitting on your chair, facing your computer terminal, and waiting for the fiver to arrive.

For us others, there is daily sunbathing and occasional steam baths from the ever elusive rain. Then you come home to a virutal oven of a room.

Touch the walls and they are hot. Turn on your fan and a hot steamy stream of air would assault you. A cool shower might stave off the encroaching heat, but unfortunately water pressure is depressingly low. A personal air-conditioner is a luxury often dreamt of, but so frustratingly unattainable.

The answer to the heat? Hit the malls and join the masses enjoying free air-conditioning.

Sometimes I wonder if it is a good idea to set up a mini-dorm in the malls. Like rent a good enough space and put in some double-bunk beds for economy class and perhaps partitioned off spaces for single or twin sized beds for people who would prefer more privacy. Charge by the hour and wait for the money to roll in.

Crude but effective I guess. I mean I would certainly go for it just to escape from this frigging heat.

Just my one cent. . . .
