Desperate for Water
It was so hot today and I dehydrated myself so badly (because I’m dumb, that’s why) that I seriously considered joining the protesters and behaving in such an unruly way that police would have to be called to hose me down.
After my classes, I took Klara to the splash pad. I was so desperate for water that I walked under a huge bucket of water in my formal dress, makeup and hair. Of course, people in swimsuits and shorts stared but a huge advantage of age is that the last time I cared about what anybody thought was in the last century.
