How the Un-Air-Conditioned Survive

BlogHer Spotlight

Hard to imagine facing this hot-as-Hades summer without the miracle of air conditioning but one family bravely trudges on, year after year. This hilariously bitter post ticks off the various ways in which they survive to sweat another day:

"6) Clothes are optional: I'm not exaggerating when I say my kids have greeted me at the door naked every single day this week. When getting dressing on my days off, I ask myself, 'What's the minimum amount of clothing required in order to still feel comfortable answering the door to a neighbor or delivery person?' After dark, that question is replaced with, 'What's the minimum amount of clothing required to prevent essentials parts of my body from sticking to the furniture?'"
