We are well into the joyously warm parts of summer now, which means heat alerts for many of us here in the States, and that for our fellow far North Americans that likely most of snow has probably melted. There are those folks around that should really stay out of the kitchen, because when summer comes on they really just can’t stand the heat. As the temperature rises, these individuals get quickly burned out and unable to function outdoors. If you fit this description, then stay in and ponder this Quixotic Quantum Quandary!
Just as an interesting factoid for you all, I happen to be the opposite of the wilting summer flower. When the mercury starts to dip below around 80 °F (26.6666667 °C) I start casting my eyes about to locate my coat. I never go anywhere without a trusty sweatshirt to don after about 10 minutes in any air conditioned space, so I don’t get the chattery teeth. Once upon a time I worked down in South Texas with a fellow from Ohio, and he and I engaged in a fair amount of good nature razzing of each other about our temperature proclivities. I am quite sure that at least once or twice he was sweating outside while I was snug in a giant puffy jacket. As far as I have noted through years of careful observation, while most folks do seem to have a temperature sensitivity of some sort, my particular appreciation for the days when the warmth eclipses the Fahrenheit century mark seems to be a bit of a minority position.
