I remember my trip to Vegas in... August I think (2019). Wasn't so bad when being misted on the court behind the Flamingo and my sweat just evaporated. Then I took a long walk and barely made it back, collapsing a couple times. Never felt so much heat. My body is used to humidity telling me when to work and when not to work. I hate humidity but at least it warns me BEFORE I collapse into a heap.

7) When the person you're conversing with says, "You know my last girlfriend/boyfriend/partner is ..." is the moment you should realize that you sound like a twat.

8c) Especially when the grass is high and catches on the rake.

8d) In winter, scoop the poop while it's frozen. Don't wait until it has thawed.
