Like most of the United States, here in Tennessee we are experiencing much higher than average heat and humidity. Yesterday's heat index was 105 degrees Farenheit. When I lived in Arizona, it would regularly get to over 105 degrees, but it feels so very different than this hot, muggy, summer air.
I'm so very spoiled today. I enjoy air conditioning at work, air conditioning in my car, and air conditioning at home. When I was growing up, we had open windows, fans, and sometimes a room with a very noisy window air conditioner.
But my favorite way to cool off was when Dad would bring home a nice, cold watermelon. He would cut it outside and give us each a big wedge with lots of black seeds (which would often lead to a seed spitting fight between my brother and I).
Juicy. Yummy. Mmm.
