I think I’m safe in saying that when most of us think of hibernation, we think of animals like bears holing up in a cave and sleeping the winter away. Well, let me tell you, I am hibernating this summer. It is so hot outside that the heat takes your breath away. So the best place to be is inside in the air conditioning. Thank God for whoever invented air conditioning and for the means to have it in our homes.
I remember when I was a child, we didn’t have air conditioning. Somehow we survived with the help of a window fan. But in those days air conditioning was rare. If a store or a movie had air conditioning, they advertised it as a real advantage to doing business with them. So my theory is that your body had time to adjust to the heat. Still there were some awfully hot days and nights. Now, with almost every place air conditioned and with cars and buses air conditioned, you have no time to adjust to the heat.
That’s why I’m hibernating in my house.
