Nike's Psyche

An outlet for my peaceful ponderings with, perhaps, the occasional rant.

Hot Hot Hot Friday Five


1. What's the high temperature today where you are?

105 with the heat index (93)

2. Favorite way(s) to beat the heat.

a nice breeze at the beach, a long cold drink (read "beer") on the beach or air conditioning

3. "It's not the heat, it's the humidity." Evaluate this statement.

Heat is heat, but humid heat is like walking under a hot, wet, wool blanket; dry heat like having the moisture sucked from your body.

4. Discuss one or more of the following: sauna, hot tub, sweat lodge, warm-stone massage.

I've never had a warm-stone massage but it sounds nice nor have I been in a sweat lodge; I enjoy saunas and own a hot tub.

5. Hottest you've ever been in your life

One day, while through hiking the Appalachian Trail, the heat in Pennsylvania was too hot to hike in but it was nearly more miserabale sweltering in our backpacking tent and trying to eat our newly purchased cheese before it melted.

Non-temperature related bonus: In your opinion... who's hot?

Well, my husband is the obvious answer! But . . . I can't resist adding Gerard Butler to that short list.
