I am reworking my pond area so it’s not so pathetic and bare. Without my old tree it’s in full sun. The new tree just isn’t big enough to provide shade. (What’s with that? It’s been in the ground a month! What a slacker!)
First off, I didn’t realize that armpit glands enlarge as you age. They migrate to places they never were before. Places they don’t belong.
I am not large boobed but there was a river under there deep enough to hold trout. Seriously. Maybe even a few tadpoles.
The flanks were soaked. I am not even going to mention my crotch. Opps! Too late! Well never mind that. Let’s just say there was no dryness issue.
I checked Wikipedia. Did you know that sweat contains pheromones and it’s used to attract the opposite sex? When was the last time you were attracted to a stinky, sweaty mate? Not me mon!
Of course I turned to the experts – my exercise ladies. I found out I am very lucky. Some of them have a river under their abdomen too. Who thought that would flood.
One of the ladies uses baby powder. I’ve never done the powder stuff but today it would be like putty molded all over my body.
You can buy towel slings for the abdomen to keep you comfortable. My answer would be to stop doing work that makes you sweat!
It’s not just the sweating. With the high humidity you can’t dry out. I am expecting mushrooms to pop out all over. I’m hoping for truffles but more likely it will be skin warts and boogers.
Another suggestion from the ladies (it came from her doctor) is to use jock itch medication. It’s a fungus problem and jocks get all sweaty and fungus-y. (I sort of remember that from my early dating years although there were problems with those jocks that went far beyond fungus. That is another post.)
My solution is to stop working in the heat. Use the age card. Old people shouldn’t be exerting themselves in hot weather (anything over 70 degrees). Take a lukewarm shower and end with a nice long cold drink.
Start with non-alcoholic drinks first. You are dehydrated and alcohol can make you wonky. Wonky is sure to give you a headache and make you do crazy things. (I remember that from my dating years too!)
