It’s so hot that…

I’m debating on whether or not to tan today. It’s already plus 25C and it’s supposed to get up to 30C. It’s close to 27C in my condo. I have both fans going. All the windows are closed. And curtains are drawn. If I sit very still, it’s a comfortable temperature. But it’s only June…
