After all these years, is humidity now my friend?

On Wednesday it was super hot and humid. My classroom was 94 degrees. Talk about being rung out. I was soaked through to my underwear. I was gross. I couldn't stand myself. On top of that I had 18 hot, sweaty, droopy kids. It's a good thing they're only in 2nd grade or I could have added stinky to that list.
My building is air conditioned, but there is always a problem when the ac/heat gets turned on for the first time. Private industry would not stand for this. The workers would all walk out. Ahem... I heard the fix-it guy tell the secretary that the city did not pay the bill for work done over the winter, so no a/c for us. Crap.
My point is really not about the heat or the sweaty kids. When I got home my number was 74. Usually it's 100ish. I even had a Hoodsie cup of ice cream with the rugrats. Did I sweat out the sugar? If that's so, then I don't hate humidity anymore, and I'll try to stop complaining about it. Who knew? Certainly not me, HHH (hazy, hot and humid) is now my friend. Oh the possibilities!

Well, nice to know that humidity can be good for someone....something! I'd love to send our your way.....

Take care, and enjoy your summer. I assume you will have summer break from school soon. Our schools have to go a couple weeks into June this year - in order to make up for snow days. Teachers hate it!!!
