I do not handle heat undoubtedly well, I don’t assume I ever have.
So when I was forced to wait outside for various minutes in the blazing sun, I was not feeling well.
Something about being overheated makes me know nauseous, & so I try to avoid overheated sunny days as much as possible. But when my favorite author was coming to my town for book signings! I knew that was an option that I could not resist. However, what I didn’t anticipate was the long line. There were various cars & people lined up, & I already regretted not bringing a chair, & later on, I would absolutely regret not bringing a portable cooling system. I got in line, & I noticed that it was taking forever to get somewhere. After about an minute, I sat down on the overheated sidewalk. I was beginning to overheat, & was feeling nauseous. I was certainly regretting not bringing a portable cooling unit. I don’t even have a portable unit, however I sure would have purchased one if I knew it was going to be this bad. It was tortuous when, only 30 minutes later, I could sit in the dining room of the Borders, where the book signing was taking place. I was close enough to know the ice chilly air from inside, but the guy in front of me was blocking the door due to the line. The only way to get closer was to leave the line, which was not happening. I finally got my book signed with a sweet message, which made it all worth it, & I was so glad to head back home.
