Well, this is embarrassing, although I suppose I should be used to it by now. I ended yesterday’s post with a silly prediction that I would be explaining once again why I could not write a decent post. I was kidding! I meant to write a good post! I really did!
However, it is a well-known fact that shit happens. And sometimes doesn’t happen. In this case what did not happen was my brain functioning. I’m going to blame it on the continuing heat and humidity, which I had not expected. At least, I had not expected it to be so bad. I thought yesterday was supposed to be the worst day. I thought we were supposed to get thunderstorms at some point which would cool things off. Another cruel hoax by the weather people!
I really can’t spend another post complaining about being uncomfortable, so I will share one of Steven’s and my movie memories. One of our favorite hot weather movies is Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window. In this movie, it is very important to the plot that the city is in the middle of a terrible heat wave. In the middle of one night it rains. The next day, the wonderful Thelma Ritter (one of our all-time MOST favorite actresses) says, “You’d think the rain would have cooled things off. All it did was make the heat wet.”
Steven and I often use that line, or variations of it, when it rains. Unfortunately, it has not rained yet, and the heat is already wet.
In the meantime, it is, indeed Wuss-out Wednesday, and I have rehearsal for Roxy is less than an hour (I did mention the play I’m in, didn’t I? I’ll no doubt write even more about it as time goes on). What will I come up with for Non-Sequitur Thursday? Time will tell. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
