How Ironic… June 9, 2009

As Mom, Manders, Dad, and I were leaving this place we had gone after we picked up Dad from work, I noticed that the truck was getting warmer. True that it was 95 out and our vehicle seems to attract heat like a moth to a bug zapper. So I said that when I get too hot in the dog days of Summer, I think of sweaters of the Fall, snow of the Winter, and turkey on Thanksgiving. While the thought of turkey doesn’t naturally bring the idea of “cold”, Thanksgiving can be nicely cool here. Just the idea of putting on a turtleneck (yes, I own one) and going over to my Grandmother’s house while it is 45* outside just makes me wish Fall would come sooner. Naturally, this sparked conversation between everyone.

rsz_1114677_0465_1_lgTwin had replied with something to the effect of buying a bag of ice and just laying on it. But ice in Texas just doesn’t last very long. Then Dad started saying something about ice and the cooling effect just as I turned my head to look out Mom’s driver side window. What I noticed seemed ironic but yet, creepy. Just as he finished saying what he was saying, a truck drove by that had a TCBY sign in the back. I let out this huge grin and said “That’ll work!”. Of course, we weren’t going to get any ice cream because we had ice cream here at home and we had planned on getting pizza for dinner. But the thought that we were thinking of “cooling” ideas.

While I don’t plan on venturing outside after 12pm tomorrow due to the fact that we are to have 100 degree weather with heat indexes well over triple digits, the thought of that TCBY sign going by just as Dad was talking about ice (or was it ice cream?) still makes me giggle. It’s not every day that something like this happens. Nope, surely isn’t.

~~Yeah, I remember seeing that go by as we were talking about staying cool–was rather ironic I thought–hope u feel better soon–sorry about feeling bad–no more pizza!–hurry fall, hurry!!!!!!

That was quite odd, huh? And yet, very funny!

When it gets too hot here, I have this thing called a Chill Pillow and it slips in between the pillowcase and pillow and keeps your pillow nice and cool all night so you can sleep. I think I found it at Target or WalMart and it didn’t cost much at all – you should look for one of those. Here’s an add from an online drugstore that carries them. http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=77866&aid=336064&aparam=chill%20pillow&scinit1=chill%20pillow

check it out. Hugs!
