“He was in love with life as an ant on a summer blade of grass.” — Ben Hecht
I hate summer. I hate the heat. I hate sweating. I hate the sun beating down on me. And while Romanian summers are cooler than what we’re used to back home, we’ve had an exceptionally hot week here … and there is no air-conditioning. The only thing that’s kept me happy (okay, realistically, what’s kept me less cranky) are sticky ice-cream faces; sweet, sweaty baby curls; my smart husband, who gives me his hat when I forget mine; and this beautiful place, which distracts me with its history, its skies, and its impromptu fields of flowers.
How do you keep your cool when it’s hot? What distracts you from the heat? And what’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
See more summer at Beth’s on Thursday.
