It's so hot I can't even think straight.  Sunday was so hot I could barely hold a convo with Val while we got cupcakes.  Monday (yesterday) I avoided going outside all together.  It was hermit day.  Today, well I didn't really have a choice but to be at work outside with some electric fans to keep me cool.  TOMORROW,  oh tomorrow, it's gonna be a killer.  HIGH: 98 degrees (like the boy band) with a heat index of 110.  I might melt and die on stage tomorrow.  

How to stay cool?  
a) stay in nice air-conditioned apt
b) postpone cupcake hunt until weather conditions improve
c) veg while rehydrating with some yummy Vita Coco Coconut Water 
d) eat POPSICLES! 

Last night I did actually venture outside at 10pm to about a 1/4 of a block away to the grocery attached to my apt building in order to get me some ice cream/popsicles/etc.  At 10pm, it was still steamy out...ouch.  My glasses totally fogged up when I stepped outside.

I headed straight for the frozen snackies section and debated between getting either Ben & Jerry's Red Velvet Cake or Skinny Cow Fudge Bars.  I might sound crazy, but it's hard for me to finish a small pint of ice cream before it gets all freezer burned and funny tasting.  Fudge Bars it is!  
Mmmm...not only tasty but kind of healthy too.  
Ok Chicago, I'm too young to die from overheating.  Please be nice and cool down by tomorrow morning?!?

  1. I was going to suggest beer. That's what we do down here in Central Illinois. :)
