Weather and I have come to an agreement:
it does what it wants, and I don’t complain about it.
Weather or not I like it.
note: why isn’t there “push-up underwear” to make a guy look like he’s got a chest instead of a gut? … I don’t really care; I’m just wondering … or wonderful … or something like that.
double note: a wonder-ring sounds better than a wonderingworm.
triple note: why do I imagine those statues holding pizza boxes?
Today I threw out the extra set of shoelaces that came with some shoes that I can’t remember ever having. Black shoelaces??? It’s a mystery.

I love hot weather: summer means t-shirts and shorts, BBQs, turning brown, and visits to the beach.
The hottest place I’ve been is Perth, Australia during a heatwave: 45 degrees Celcius (113 fahrenheit).
I sat on a shaded patio at a hostel with a few others. Between sips of beer, we took turns saying things like:
“Man, it’s hot.”
“It’s so hot.”
Really hot weather affects speech, I guess.
My friend was working in a metal warehouse Australianizing Eastern European jeep things: attaching roo bars, adjusting suspensions, and bolting beer holders on to the dashboards.
He roasted in that warehouse.
Someone put a dial on the wall and labelled it air-conditioner.
Every 15 minutes someone would shout, ” Can you turn up the air-con, it’s getting a bit warm in here”.
Someone would walk over and turn up the dial.
Those guys had a pretty good sense of humor that day; and heat stroke.
I hope at the end of the day they turned the air-con off.
It’s not good to waste energy.

I love extreme weather.
I was deprived growing up on Vancouver Island. If you don’t know where it is, you can google.
But no extreme weather there: unless you think severe cloudyness and drizzle qualify!
Living in Japan I experience extreme weather regularly: typhoons; extreme rain; and thunder and lightning.
I guess earthquakes don’t count as weather, but we get them too!
I’m sure if I lived on a major fault line or on the coast I wouldn’t be so enthusiastic about it.
I just have to remember not to wear my metal hat outside sometimes!
