How best to deal with the heat?
It's hot. Officially, very hot.The heat brings out many things; smiles, relaxation,pleasure, fun. It also brings out a number of behaviours that put a dent into my feeling of serenity, for example inconsiderate shop staff who would rather not have to be indoors and therefore are irritable. Bus Drivers who just want to get out of the driver seat at the Bus depot; so much so that they drive erratically with spine juddering stops and starts.
It's 'get your tats out' time and sod us poor observers who prefer not to see badly drawn bulldogs and the legend Mum & Dad etched onto shoulders in black ink. Nor does the sight of spiritual Celtic etchings make for pleasant artistic visuals.
And of course young women with their Dagenham Barcodes on show sitting proudly at the base of their spine just above the bottom cleavage.
I'm not being stuffy or old fashion I just believe that if you've got it flaunt it but if you don't have anything remotely approaching 'it' for pity's sake keep it out of sight and out of mind.
