Here we go….earlier today you got a chance to read some of the reasons why I love Summer (The Beauty), now check out why I hate it (The Beast!)
1. It’s HOT!!!
There’s no nice way to say it! Triple digit (and double digits when it gets past 90 degrees) temperatures are never fun and it just makes you more irritable being hot. At least when it’s cold you can cover up in layers…but when it’s hot, you can be butt naked and guess what?? You’re still HOT!! WTH?!
2. Empty Pockets
If we add up the costs, most of us will find that we spend much more money in the Summer. Between high electricity bills to run the AC, washing more clothes and buying more cold drinks, it’s not a cheap season. Summer can not only put sweat on your face, but a nice dent in your wallet too.
BBQ? Check. Pool Party? Check. Fireworks? Check. Mosquitos? Aaaggghh!! I hate mosquitos with a passion and they always seem to weasel their way in during the Summer months. You hardly ever see mosquitos in the Winter…and why??? Because it’s so cold, their wings will probably freeze before they get full lift off from the ground…SMH. Interestingly enough, I’ve noticed when I take vitamin B, it seems to ward them off a little bit.
4. What’s That Smell???
As much as we would like to think that everyone has excellent hygiene, we know that’s not the truth. And hey, even those that do have great hygiene can be a little “unsure” from standing outside in the heat too long. The bad thing about Summer is that it’s a microwave for unpleasant smells. The cold usually zaps any body odors and keeps them contained to that person walking around with them. Think about it…have you ever gone to a hot hospital? Nope. Why??? The smell itself would probably be sickening enough.
5. Metal Burn
Have you ever gotten in your car in the heat of the day and the metal part of the seat belt hits your arm!? OUCH! I hate that…and it seems like it happens to me all the time, lol. There’s nothing more irritating than trying to maneuver your way into a hot car that’s been sitting in the sun for hours. The steering wheel, seat belt and the arm rest are blazing and you try not to brush against them, but somehow you always do.
So now that you’ve read what I love and hate about Summer, let’s hear what you think about it? Do you agree with the list or have one of your own? Or maybe you love Summer and hate Winter? Or do you just prefer Spring or Fall? Share your thoughts!
