I joke with family and friends all the time about waiting on my vampire to come bite me, but I am not so sure I can allow that to happen. I will have to find another path to immortality, because I am not sure I could give up the sun. Maybe, I can pop on over to the world of shiny vampires or vampires with magic rings so that I can enjoy the best of both worlds?
No matter! I have yet to be bitten, so that is a question for another day. For today, I celebrate the sun! I am a sun worshiper! Yes, I know - CANCER! Well, I didn't say I was stupid. I do know what hats and sunscreen are for, but I love the sun. I would rather be hot any day of the year than cold and unable to do anything about it. Did I mention my thin blood, you know the stuff that barely gives me a viable body temperature? Seriously, my body temperature is so low on a normal basis that a fever for me is actually hitting 98.6 (that's 36 or so for you celsius users). Yes, creepy, I know and if it weren't for those unmentionable gray hairs that keep peeking through the rest of my brunette tresses, I would say: "perhaps, I've already been bitten." Alas, time is laughing at me. So, while I flip that special finger up to my newest gray-haired discovery I can at least go outside and warm my blood, feel alive, and perhaps toss myself into the nearest (non-gator-infested) body of water that I can find, because the next best thing to sunshine is playing in the water! Yes, I am a summer girl at heart. Let's face it, I was born in the winter - of course I want the opposite! I'm also a fire sign - so maybe that's why?
These are all perfectly debatable things, but what I know for certain is that it was 100+ (that's 37.7+ for the rest of the world) here yesterday and aside from my skin melting into parts of my car when I attempted to head to town, I loved it! I think my body temp actually went up a few degrees, without the need of a fever! ;)
I am currently headed outside to enjoy the sun on it's gloriously long day! I hope you find the time to enjoy it as well. And if you don't enjoy the sunshine or the heat - well... (I may still be convinced to give up the sun for that bite after all! - I'll send you my number!) ;)
HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE
