Share the drought

Noontime in Alabama:

“Doesn’t look like rain,” I said to her as she was cleaning up tables.

“Too bad.” She shook her head. “We need all the rain we can get.”

I told her where I’d come from, and that we’d had a year’s worth of rain in less than seven months. She asked if we were going to plant rice next year. I said I’d certainly suggest it.

In the meantime, fashionable Oklahoma women (yes, there are such, now shuddup) have begun wearing these:

    Hilarious! But don’t need ’em in Tennessee. Maybe some insulated sole footwear so as not to scorch your tootsies. Maybe 2-inch platform soles with tiny little air conditioners built in, solar powered of course. Walk around here for 20 minutes and then tell me there’s no such thing as global warming.

    I swear if I could get a pair before I go on another cruise, I’d wear them to the Captain’s dinner. What a freakin’ riot those are. Or cause to start one.

    Doesn’t it always rain in Florida? Or am I thinking of southern California?

    It never rains in southern California. (Seems I’ve often heard that kind of talk before.)
