  • You discover that in July it takes only two fingers to drive your car.
  • You discover that you can get sunburn through your car window.
  • You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
  • You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 am before work.
  • No one would dream of not having air conditioning.
  • Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is: ‘What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?’
  • You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
  • The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
  • The potatoes cook underground and all you have to do to have lunch is to pull one out and add butter, salt, and pepper.
  • Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hardboiled eggs.
  • Cows are giving evaporated milk.
  • The trees are whistlin’ for the dogs.
  • A sad Texan prayed once: ‘I wish it would rain – not so much for me, cuz I’ve seen it, but for my 7-year-old.’
