It's a HOT South African Summer

A friend sent me this email tonight, which pretty much sums up the Summer we are having.

You know you're in a South African summer when:-

A The best parking space is determined by shade instead of distance.

B Hot water comes out of both taps.

C You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

D The temperature drops below 35 degrees C and you feel a little chilly.

E You discover that in January it only takes two fingers to steer your car.

F You discover that you can get sunburnt through your car window.

G You develop a fear of metal car door handles.

H You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30am.

I Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

J You realise that asphalt has a liquid state.

K Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to prevent them from laying hard-boiled eggs.

L The trees are whistling for the dogs.

M While walking back barefoot to your car from the beach, you do a tightrope act on the white lines in the carpark.

N You catch a cold from having the aircon full blast while you sleep during the night.

O You learn that the Boardwalk isn't a shopping centre, its a temple to worship air-conditioning.

P It is considered OK to wear your Bikini top under any garment.. just in case

Q If you dont wear your slops to work you probably dont have any.

R The only guys wearing ties are the ones that flew in this morning and can't wait to leave.
