Today the temperature reached 41.1 degrees Celsius
as a part of Adelaide's official first heat wave for this summer.
We have been hibernating inside in the air conditioning
but I have been very jealous of my 4 year old daughter
who has been running around in a pair of knickers and nothing else.
Yes, I know that I could do the same
but I'd rather wear the physical discomfort of a couple of days of feeling overheated
than the financial discomfort of years of therapy payments
for the help that my children would need after that vision.
At my advancing age,
a fully clothed family game of Twister can be unpleasant enough.
