Today in LA it was about 90. Yesterday Google said that it would be that today–an increase of 17 degrees. So today it was hot and windy and dry, and now I’m sneezing and feel like I’m drowning. To make matters worse, today’s Spelling Bee was absurd. You’ll have to pardon me for the lack of creativity in this post. My head is throbbing, and I’m going to take a benadryl. Benefits of benedryl for me: I can fall asleep, and my allergies can clear up overnight. Downside is that the sleep I get is not restful. So I take it only when absolutely necessary. Sooooo, exceedingly rarely.
Yesterday I missed JUJU, LUAU, LULU, LUNA, ULNA, and ULNAR.
