...who can't believe the conditions we've been asked to work under. Granted, I got two days away from the Hell-Hole this week, but the other three days - holy shitoly!! I seriously thought I was going to pass out today, not to mention the fact that I felt nauseous the entire day. (Although, not ALL the nausea was due to the weather....)
This was in today's Chicago Sun Times. You bet your sweet ass that our illustrious leader, Ron Huberman, was sitting in his air-conditioned office all day today, while some of our classrooms registered 110 on our thermometers. It's cruel and unusual punishment, if you ask me. At least if the kids were at home, even if they don't have air-conditioners at home, they could have stripped down to cooler clothing, versus their restrictive uniforms. Or, they could have run around in the sprinkler or even thrown cups of water at each other, for Pete's sake! Most of Chicago's neighborhood parks have sprinklers that the kids could have been playing in, they could have gone to the library with their parents to cool off, or the mall, or any number of public places that have air-conditioning. Ugh!
OK, enough, it's over. I just hope next week is a little cooler. I've been sitting here watching the most awesome light show I've ever seen, as there is a huge storm rolling in right now. For the first 15 minutes, I didn't know what the hell the flashes were. I actually thought that someone had a fire burning, either next door or across the street. But, then I went outside to investigate, and saw the coolest lightning flashing in the distance. In the past few minutes, the thunder has started, and I'm seriously looking forward to this storm.
