Day #156: Butthole Surfers – “Summer in the City”
I was on my way home today when I passed a woman in a polar bear costume coming up the metro escalator. How can a polar bear stand this heat?! The mercifully cool days are long gone for a while. We’ve finally reached that stretch of summer that is just unbearably hot. The kind of days that coat the city in an orange haze. When the humidity hangs in the air like dead weight pressing on your shoulders, and the everything feels like it’s moving in slow motion. The kind of heat that leaves you wondering if all those polar bears walking around the city are just a hallucination.
