Florida in July is kind of like hell, except way more humid and with more bugs (or so I would imagine). The humidity and heat combine to make the flying bugs lazy and or dizzy until they collapse with heat exhaustion and stick to my head.

Remember how I bought that new clinical strength Secret deodorant? How could you not, it was such a fascinating topic. Anyhow, it is working quite well, my armpits have never been dryer. Wish I could say the same for the rest of me - would it be weird to apply deodorant to my forehead and the back of my knees? I'm thinking no.

Part of the heat/humidity problem lies with my car and its refusal to produce cold a/c unless the temperature drops below 70 degrees. Stupid car.

It also takes me a long time to get places some days as I have to be very stealthy and avoid the cops. This sometimes involves making a complicated series of turns to avoid detection.

I do this because the tags expired on my car. . . in April.

I supposed I could just pay the $33 and go get new tags, but where is the fun in that?

Besides everyone knows that vehicle tags are an invention of The Man and I refuse to be oppressed. Or repressed.

Let's just say I refuse to be pressed.

Now excuse me, I am going to go put some deodorant on the bendy part of my elbows and drive home for lunch. It's a 3 mile drive so depending on cop activity in the area, it could take anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours to get there.
