With the heat, I get light-headed, nauseous, dizzy, and simply drained. Sometimes it is hard to focus since I am in such a bad condition. I just do what I can do get through the night. It is uncomfortable and unpleasant, but what can I do? I have always had a low tolerance for heat ever since I can remember. And I don’t think that is ever going to change. I don’t think working in the kitchen has changed that or will ever change that. I just cannot stand or cope with heat. In the summertime, I just deal with DYING every night.During the heat wave, this has been my source of AC…..the walk-in.
I’ve been coming in here to cool off and calm myself down whenever I can. Otherwise, I think I would really pass out between orders. Too bad our walk-in is so tiny. I would love to do some of my work in there when it is unbearably hot.Also, I think I would die even more if I didn’t have ice. I have been putting ice inside my neckerchief, hat, and shirt. It helps a LOT with staying a bit cooler.
Well, I guess I will enjoy the brief momentary perfect weather until it lasts. I gotta brace myself for another heat wave that is supposedly right around the corner. ***Sigh***
