About the weather

“It’s hot outside!” I hear my coworkers exclaim whenever they come back from lunch, stepping into the cool air-conditioned building. I normally nod and give a forced smile. My initial, unspoken, response is, “Is this unexpected?” I, too, have made comments about the weather, though generally it is preceded by, “Ugh,” and then, “It’s hot outside.” A statement, said flatly, not ending in rising inflection indicating surprise or question. Yes. It’s San Antonio. In August. It’s hot outside. Anything else really would be unexpected.

    Lol that’s funny. I’m still getting used to the idea of summer without hitting a hundred. We are just grazing 90 this week…it’s surreal.
