Avoiding the Sweat

Have I mentioned it’s been hot around here lately? Well, it has been. Like in the 90’s just about every day in June with about a million percent humidity. It’s been kind of miserable. For me especially, because y’all, I don’t like to be hot. I hate to sweat. I mean… HATE TO SWEAT. I think it has something to do with the fact that when I sweat, I sweat. I don’t glisten. Or lightly perspire. I sweat. Especially my head, because you know I have like three times the normal amount of hair on my head. And all that hair really holds the heat in. And all that hair gets really big and frizzy when it gets sweaty too.

As a side note, I think that’s the real reason there’s so much big hair in the south. Humidity + Hair = Big. I think a lot of women just got tired of fighting it and embraced the humidity-pumped big hair. I can see it. I’ve almost been there myself.

Anyway, in an attempt to avoid sweat and the ensuing big hair, I’ve employed two main tactics this summer. Stay inside as much as possible, and when we must be outside, make sure there is a pool in close proximity.

Monday morning was one of those times when we really needed to get out of the house, but it was already in the 80’s by 9:00. So, we went swimming. Now Abby, after two years of lessons, is a swimmer. She loves any pool and swims all over it. Grayson is a sitter. Not even a wader, just a sitter. He never leaves the steps. He’ll wear some floaties (maybe) if I make him, but it doesn’t really matter because he’s not going to leave the steps.

And Grayson sitting. At least they’re both happy. And I’m not sweating.
