It's getting hot in the generator on!

Wow, it's hot. March is supposed to be the hottest month here and boy am I feeling it!! After I showered and dressed today, I went to put on a little make-up but ended up just kind of swirling my liquid concealer around on my just showered but already sweaty face. Not pretty! I think it marked the end of my make-up days.
Today I went to town with Chad (one of my fellow team members). We had lots of errands to run. Now Chad is a fast walker. And those of you who know me well, know that fast walking is not my forte'. I'm more of a mosey er (I have no idea how to spell that). Anyway, Chad had to run to a couple places to get car parts and since I have no idea/interest in car parts and literally slow him down while he's walking, I decided to stay in the car and read my book (just started the Lord of the Ring series!) Wow. Bad idea.
We cracked the window so I would have some airflow but it was NOT enough. I started sweating. I sweat like I have never sweat before. It was dripping down my face, neck, back, everywhere! Chad has a rag he uses to dust the car so I grabbed that dirty, dusty rag and turned into my sweat mop. I was afraid I was going to have to ring it out!
I was leery to open the door because I was in charge of guarding a large sum of money Chad had just received from the bank. But I finally couldn't stand it anymore. I had to open the door to let some air in. Another big mistake!
I set the car alarm off. And I had no idea where Chad was to bring the key to turn the alarm off. After opening all the doors multiple times, trying to do anything I could to turn it off, I finally gave up.
So there I was, sitting in the middle of a busy shopping area in a sweltering car, sweating from every pore in my body, and trying to nonchanantly pretend like it wasn't MY car who kept incessently screaming BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP by continuing to read The Hobbit......nice. One guy from one of the stores came and asked me if I could please turn it off because it was too loud. Like he thought I just hadn't noticed it or something?!??! Oops!
