It's So Hot ..

The potatoes cook underground, and all you have to do to have lunch is to pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs. The cows are giving evaporated milk. The trees are whistling for the dogs. You no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water. You eat hot chilies to cool your mouth off. Or go to McDonalds to get coffee and pour it on your lap -- just to cool off! You can make instant sun tea. You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron. The temperature drops below (35°C), you feel a bit chilly. You have experienced condensation on your butt from the hot water in the toilet bowl. (my fav. !) You would give anything to be able to splash cold water on your face. You can attend any function wearing shorts and a tank top. The 4 seasons are: tolerable, hot, really hot, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME ??!! You discover that in July, it takes only two fingers to drive your car. You discover that you can get a sunburn through your car window. You notice the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance. Hot water now comes out of both taps. It is noon in July, kids are on summer vacation, and not one person is out on the streets. You actually burn your hand opening the car door. You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m. ( i hate it !) Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?" You realise that asphalt has a liquid state. They don't bother making themometers that go below 30'C degrees. source: and

الزحمة و عديمي الأخلاق !!

في طريقي للدوام اليوم العصر كان هناك ازدحام شديد في الطريق بسبب حادث لسيارة مقلوبة ومحترقة ، والذي أغاضني هو كوني متأخر عن الدوام والناس يمشون ببطء شديد ، الكل يريد أن " يتطمش " ، وفوق هذا كله مرور عديمي الأخلاق على حارة الأمان ( أو كتف الشارع أو جانب الطريق ) وتجاوزي بسرعة ثم الدخول في الحارة أمامي !! وكأننا جئنا لتمضية الوقت والتسكع في الشوارع وهم فقط المتأخرين وأصحاب الأعمال المهمة !! بل وأكثر من هذا أن الشرطي لم يخالف سوى سيارة واحدة فقط من أصل 10 أو أكثر مروا أمامي ! لو كنت مكان هذا الشرطي لأوقفتهم وجعلتهم ينتظرون حتى ينفض الزحام ثم أخالفهم ثم أسرحهم بعدها حتى يشعروا بالمعنى الحقيقي لأخذ دور الناس وتأخيرهم !!!
ومن استعجل الشيء قبل أوانه عوقب بحرمانه !! هذا المثل المفروض أن يطبق على هؤلاء عديمي الأخلاق
