The good news is that we haven’t killed each other yet.
The bad news is that we STILL have 24 more days in the Cold Room together.
HOW WILL WE SURVIVE?
Hmmm…does that look like a person who can take 24 more days?
This could get dangerous.
For those who haven’t heard, the Cold Room is where the five of us Grays have been spending our time whenever we are awake and in our house…since it is the only room with the air conditioner on. (The rest of the house being about 90 to 100 degrees by 8 a.m.)
We are growing closer…much closer. Is this a good thing? Remember the old adage “the family that camps together stays together”? Well I am hoping this is true for families who spend months sleeping in the same room together too!
Pray for us, people.
Niger Hot Season Facts:
- Chocolate chip cookies, in the hot season, are actually just “chocolate cookies” since by the time you stir in the chocolate chips they are melted and turn the whole batch of dough chocolate!
- Andy has lost ten pounds.
- Nikki…well, let’s just say she is jealous of Andy’s shed pounds!
- Mangoes are about $1/kilo right now! Cheap!
- Nigerien’s have little plastic bags full of water or frozen yogurt to keep cool on these impossibly hot days.
- Everyone seems a bit more grumpy these days — (so the Gray family is not alone! Phew!)
- Swimming pools feel a bit more like baths — but at least it takes away the feeling of constant sweat.
Well, there are probably more things about our first hot season to share with you, yet I am too hot to think about it anymore.
A’tout a’l’heure! (see you later!)
