Oops, call that the "pastcast"; I started this last week.
*Pool water feels more like bath water. Not refreshing.
*The lifeguards don't whistle at your kids for running...burnt feet are more of a liability.
*Your pet goes to the door and then just decides to hold it.
*Crayons sitting on a table in the playroom actually melt.
*You consider rearranging your playroom furniture so the kid's table is nowhere near a sunny window.
*The mosquitos head north.
*You actually buy and let your children consume "slow melt popsicles" hoping that whatever chemical gives them that property is not carcinogenic.
*You consider "gothic" as a summer decorating style. Blackout curtains and lights off mean cooler temps.
*When your children ask about a summer vacation, you mutter something about hasn't keeping the house under 80 degrees been enough? It cost as much as a vacation would.
*You risk blowing up the family car at the gas pump. Turn the engine off? Um, that would mean NO A/C. Oops.*Your car is unusually cleaner because the kids are actually taking their things back inside for fear of them melting.
*The gummy vitamins that accidentally got left in the car turn to this...
*You are thankful these yummy treats seem unaffected by the heat.
Now if you could just figure out how to get yourself to the North Pole to enjoy them.
