I do not handle heat easily well, I don’t believe I ever have.
So when I was forced to wait outside for several minutes in the blazing sun, I was not feeling well.
Something about being hot makes myself and others believe nauseous, plus so I try to avoid hot sunny mornings as much as possible. But when my favorite author was coming to my neighborhood for book signings! I knew that was an occasion that I could not resist. However, what I didn’t anticipate was the long line. There were several cars plus people lined up, plus I already regretted not bringing a chair, plus later on, I would easily regret not bringing a portable a/c. I got in line, plus I noticed that it was taking forever to get somewhere. After about an minute, I sat down on the hot sidewalk. I was beginning to overheat, plus was feeling nauseous. I was easily regretting not bringing a portable cooling unit. I don’t even have a portable A/C unit, although I sure would have purchased 1 if I knew it was going to be this bad. It was tortuous when, only 30 minutes later, I could stand in the entryway of the library, where the book signing was taking venue. I was close enough to believe the ice cold A/C air from inside, however the person in front of myself and others 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, plus I was so thrilled to head back home.
