Heat Advisory.

Hot. Hot like Fourth-of-July hot. Supposed to stay hot for the next however long. A week. More. It's ninety-three degrees out there right now— over ninety for the first time this year, and we may be up near 100 by Friday. It's so hot they were talking about it in the Post Office. He said his truck was running hot, one clerk said. I can certainly understand that, said the other. Day like today.

I bought another pair of sandals. Not sure that helped.

What might help: Drinking water from the hose. Fresh greens. Cold suppers. Iced coffee. Cutting a new pair of shorts out of some dress slacks from the closet. Cheap can beer. Pears. Shade. Ceiling fans. Low-slung chairs.
