Ten Things I Hate About Summer

I can’t be alone in my dislike of this season. Please tell me I’m not. Of all the four seasons, summer is at the bottom of my like list. Today, for example was a heat index of 109 in the Carolinas. What?!?!

Here are ten reasons why I hate summer.

  1. Boob sweat – yes, I went there. I abhor a wet bra! Just, no.
  2. Swimsuits – Unfortunately, shorter clothing and less of it is not flattering to my short, round figure. The height I can thank my parents for. The size, I only have me to blame, but still not my best look.
  3. Mosquitoes, flies, spiders, ants, wasps and any other insect you can think of. Oh, can’t leave out snakes. Need I say more?
  4. Hot cars – It doesn’t take much to stretch the imagination to understand what a lobster must feel like when it is dropped into a boiling pot of water. Just get into your car on a day like today. I fairly certain I felt my skin melting.
  5. Flip flops – This is a love/hate relationship. I love the shoes. Their are so many styles to choose from. My feet on the other hand – or my toes- do not love flip flops. I have ugly toes. Is there such a thing as toe transplants?
  6. Make-up – is pointless.
  7. Hot flashes – increase in frequency and level of hotness (not in a good way).
  8. Allergies – I have not met a Flonase, Zyrtec, Benadryl or Sedated that helped.
  9. Utility bills – I do not do hot; therefore, my house stays cool – very cool. My power company loves me. My wallet – not so much.
  10. Gas prices – anyone else notice that gas prices tend to get jacked up when everyone is planning their vacations?

95 days and counting until the first day of Fall. Until then, I will enjoy not only writing but reading in the comfort of my air conditioning.
