Lost my cool


I’ve aged 20 years since Sunday.
I’m short of breath, I can’t focus. I’m grumpy.
Some greater power turned the thermostat up 10 degrees overnight and left the humidifier on.
The air has a physical presence now.
I walk out of an air conditioned room and and hit an invisible wall.
If it were my daughter I’d rush her to hospital and demand antibiotics.
But it’s not.
It’s just the way it is.
And the way it will be, for your future.
You just gotta sweat it out.

Japanese summer is like childbirth: if you could remember it properly you'd never endure it again.
