The day I wrote this, it was 95 degrees out in NYC, and I hated having to wait inside the subway station to go home. If it was rush hour, I likely would have passed out due to the crowds and the heat they generate. As it was, I was very uncomfortable, and knew the way to minimize my discomfort would be to move as little as possible.

Some people would tell me - go to the beach and get some sun. I'd be burnt like this lady in no time. I have some issues that I soon will go to the dermatologist for, and I don't want to make them worse by being in the sun any longer than I have to.... I prefer being in cool, dark places - a nice cavern would be perfect for me right now - a constant 50 degrees year round. But I don't have a home in a cavern - my home is above ground, and on the top floor of my building.
Ever since I got my new air conditioner, I am comfortable getting dressed en-femme in warm weather. The unit cranks out enough cool air (and blows it hard enough) to make me comfortable while still wearing my wig. I couldn't say that last year, when I had my old air conditioner. So I'll get dressed quickly, and go from an air conditioned apartment to an air conditioned car, staying tolerably comfortable for my trip from point A to point B.
Soon, Summer will be gone, and I will be going with YGWM to do something on her birthday. Right now, I'm looking at a performance by Tom Jones. And I'll have fun telling her to bring extra underwear - as many women toss their undies at him while he is performing. Why they do this, I'll never know. But I will not be one of those doing so. One catch - if she wants to get tickets in advance, she'll need to charge the tickets - so she can pick them up using her ID....
