I don’t think I will ever be able to stop showering. It’s been about three hours now, and I still don’t feel like I’m ready to exit my shower or step foot into the rest of the disgusting world yet. I could probably stay in here all day long… and all night, if I found a way to prop myself up firmly enough. I made a huge mistake today, and I may never stop paying for it. You see, today I took the bus. On any regular old morning, taking the bus is a pretty terrible idea around here. But then, today was not just any old day, but the hottest day of the summer so far. That means, besides the bus being full of screaming old men and shaking skeleton women, it was full of humid air and human filth. The air temperature today easily reached 100 degrees before the sun had even finished rising. From 10am until 8pm, the heat index was 120 degrees, and the relative humidity was well above 85%. With all of that in mind, no one should have gone outside today. What’s more, no one should have skipped showering, gone into public, and inserted their personal sprinkler system onto public transportation. As if this stupid, run down bus wasn’t already gross enough, then you have to pack 30 people and their body heat onto the stupid metal can. I don’t actually know if the AC was working at any point on that bus today, or if there has ever been ventilation on that bus before. All I know is I’ve never been so wet or smelly from sweat before in my life… and it wasn’t even my sweat.
