I did not think for a moment that you would miss the pancake reference! Indeed, when it becomes too warm for my tastes, I also seek cooler air.
However, we do not have an air conditioning system, just an aging tower fan, and an evaporative air cooler which we have yet to retrieve from the
storage space in the loft of the shop. I love that thing so much, but I put off fetching it from the loft so that I get the most beneficial cooling
from it, during the hottest months.
If I had access to it all year round, I would not appreciate it as much when I really need the cooling, so I leave it in the loft until the point is
reached whereby if I fail to get cooling to my body, I start to present a fire hazard.
Oh damn, yes, it was hot last night too! I spent the evening at a friends place until late. Myself, my friend, and another of our friends (plus his
enormous, and utterly daft dog) were sitting in the kitchen, all windows, and the door open, and every one of us (except the dog) sweating our
buttocks off. The breeze was warmer than the still air, which did not improve matters one jot!
If anything, a hot night is far worse for me than a hot, bright day. Sleep becomes either certain, or impossible, and I find that it becomes certain
when it would be the least convienient, and impossible when sleep would be extremely necessary. Regarding how a laser feels, I would imagine that it
is somewhat akin to having a magnifying glass focus light onto ones flesh, except much worse, depending of course upon the output capacity of the
Bloody aggravating either way!
