You know you are in Texas when...I remember some of those summer days in Texas. There are so many times I miss being in Texas, but these are not some of the things I miss!
The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The trees are whistling for the dogs.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
Hot water now comes out of both taps.
You can make sun tea instantly.
You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
The temperature drops below 95 degrees and you feel a little chilly.
You discover that it only takes two fingers to steer your car.
You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.
At 1 a.m., the heat index has dropped to 94 degrees.
Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.
It's been "hot" (at least by New Hampshire standards) here this week, but this puts our summer heat in a whole new perspective. It's cool at night (not still near 100). I don't have to rull down the windows and turn up the ac full blast to be able to breath when I get in the car. And even though it's hot, it's still pretty pleasant to be outside. .... Those have to be on the list of some of the things I love about New England!
