I'm Melting!

New York City is hotter than Paul Prudhomme's asscrack and just about as pleasant. We've got us a heatwave. As wonderful as this town is, it's a lame place to be when it gets hot. All of the disgustingness of the typical NYC sidewalk takes to the air when the humidity reaches the levels it's reaching today.

My wife and I took a run/walk down by the Hudson this morning and, even at 10 AM, the heat was oppressive. We're talking Francisco Franco oppressive. So we stood in line in the sweltering heat to take advantage of the free kayaking that can be had along the Hudson in the summer months. And it was relatively refreshing, except for the fact that pregnant ladies aren't good at standing in sweltering heat and then exerting themselves in a kayak.

So we crawled back to the subway and dragged ourselves home, where we will stay. With the air conditioning up to Arctic. 'Cause fuck heat.

That is hot to be out and pregnant. I reminds me of the summer of 1995 when I was pregnant with my son. 101 degrees in the shade and I thought it would be a good idea to help with my oldest daughter's 3yo daycare class trip to Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago.

I think it took me 2 hours in air conditioning before I could complete a sentence.

Good for your wife for kayaking and getting out. I don't think I could have done it.
