The humidity is thick and choking today. I feel it pressing against me and enveloping every pore of my body, smothering me completely. I can’t breathe. It’s attached to my clothes… it’s inside of my food. When I open the windows to try to escape, I only let more of the sticky stuff inside the house. It’s a pity that Spring did not choose to show her face yet this year… hiding somewhere between Winter and Summer, like a child who is too shy to play.
Mother Nature can strangle the life out of me for a day, even if she isn’t sending some tumultuous storm my way.
There is no relief from this. I want to stand in a cool shower and hold my breath until it passes.
