Oh my gosh, it is so freaking hot! Global warming is in full effect in Kentucky and across the nation. I am trying to stay in the air conditioning as much as possible. I feel very sorry for people who don’t have any way of keeping cool. I know there are a lot of them out there who either can’t afford an air conditioner or can’t afford the electricity to run it.
I just awoke from a nap, and have decided that they make me feel worse instead of better. I have always been that way. I get up in a fog and can’t figure out what time of day or night it is. Older people always seem to take naps, so I guess I’ll have to get used to them sooner or later.
Speaking of getting older, have you ever looked down at your hands or feet and not even recognized them? I have been doing that a lot lately. My hands startled me a few weeks ago, and today I was completely astonished by those strange, wrinkly feet that were attached to the bottom of my legs.
Life can scare you that way. Sometimes it feels like I’m being pushed in a direction that I don’t want to go in, but there’s no choice in the matter. Getting older is definitely better than the alternative, I guess, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t suck in the worst way.
We saw Vicki Lawrence last night in Bardstown, and she did her hilarious “Mama” character, complete with the cheap wig and fat suit. The crowd loved it. I never realized that Vicki had such a large gay following, and it was especially surprising considering we were in a small town in KY.
That’s all for now.
