Why yes, we do take a sort of macho pride in just how much heat we can endure around here.
But we also changed that “walk and hang out in a coffeeshop for a couple hours, maybe visit the bank after” to a “walk to the bank and head straight home again. Because there’s macho pride and then there’s being stupid.
It’s officially that time of year when 9 a.m. is too late to go for a walk, and even 8 a.m. is pushing it. In part because there are hints of monsoons on the horizon, which means that our temperatures stop dropping quite so much at night.
