The thing about the summer is, well, it's really gross sometimes. Like when you stand up after the end of a meal and come face to face with the visible pool of sweat you've left on your seat. Oh and your legs, they're covered in bright red mosquito bites. Thankfully this year you made it two months without getting stung on your eyelid. ;) - not flirting this is just what it looks like when one of your eyes is swollen shut.
The thing about you in the summer is that you have limits. You realize the height of these limits when you're out with a friend on a warm, deliciously humid July night and said friend enthusiastically suggests that you "take the table outside." Moments later you hear that familiar voice asking, "is everything is OK?" because you just grabbed the host's arm and whispered, "please don't make me." But since you have an annoyingly unwavering need to please strangers and loved ones alike, you slowly let go, smile, and say, "I'm fine!"
Upon returning home you take your third shower of the day and contemplate whether or not a move to the UK is worth the hassle of uprooting your life in exchange for a consistently cool, charmingly gloomy climate. Yes, you're 100% more prone to tripping in any kind of rain boot and your hair looks gross when it's damp out but it could be worth a shot.
Speaking of hair, let’s acknowledge the obvious. Summer is not an optimal time to have bangs. But your commitment to this haircut - because when it’s good it’s good - leaves you with no option but to clip your bangs back and soldier on. For you, beach waves require the most effort. Like make yourself comfortable sprawled on the floor in front of the giant mirror in your room because you'll be here for a while kind of effort. Which is why whenever someone pulls out a camera at the beach you snatch that thing out of their hands and throw it as far in the water as you can. Kidding! Lest we not forget the restaurant incident. A more practical, non-friendship-ending alternative is to just put your SPF on and shut up.
Come to think of it, that's a fairly reasonable solution to most of the time you have to spend without AC over the duration of the summer.
