Air Conditioner

So I’ve had this weird fever for about a month now (maybe it’s been two months? Can’t remember). Anyway, my body temperature hovers around 99.2 and spikes up to 99.6 or even 100 once in a while. Is this normal? Probably not, but I don’t want to go to the doctor with an unexplained month-long low fever.

Anyway, the downside of being The Feverish One is that this heat (yeah, yeah, Portland heat is nuthin’ compared to, say, Phoenix…) increases my misery ten-fold. I long to lie on the floor with a minimum of clothing on, with a fan pointed at my head all day long. Sadly, this is not feasible on a daily basis. So I pop aspirin, drink copious amounts of water, and try not to whine TOO much about how I feel like my insides are being cooked.

Last night, things took a turn for the interesting… DH, who usually thrives in warm weather, was also feeling too hot. Around 10 pm, he turns to me and says that one of our local friends wants to find some place with air conditioning and food. Since dinner had not appeared (cooking with heat being out of the question), I was all for this.

We hopped in the car, picked up our friend, and headed for the most air conditioned restaurant I can think of – Shari’s. Shari’s seems to believe in the law of more is definitely more – I’ve been known to take a jacket in with me in the middle of summer, the place is so icy. Not last night, though – I basked in the frigid air, enjoying a hot breakfast at 10:30 at night. Ahh, air conditioning. I love it.

Today, it’s back to my dreams of lying on the floor with my fan… sadly, I’m too busy so I have my aspirin bottle in one hand and my water bottle in the other. Oh the joys of summer.
