Welcome to Hell … or Houston – it’s all the same

It was this hot at 6:30 in the evening!

Houston hit its 17th or so (I lost track) consecutive day of 100-degree-plus temperatures today. That’s wild for Houston, the TV weatherman said, and I wondered: do they have weathermen in Hell?

Let’s hope so, because imagining every one of those dipshits frying up crispy in Hell’s Fry Baby is just about the only thing that brings a smile to my heat-parched lips these days.

Oh, I should tell you many of us in heat-fried Texas spend most of our time indoors, where the air conditioning is running full blast. And we ain’t too bad about keeping the cold beer and the cool rock and roll flowing, as well.
