It was a balmy 102 degrees here in Cincinnati. I think you could literally fry an egg on the sidewalk. This didn't stop my intrepid son from playing out in the heat.
"Bubba," I said. "Don't you think it's a little hot out there?"
"Yeah," he said. "But I have a solution."
I couldn't wait to hear about this. "What's your solution?"
"An ice vest."
"An ice vest?"
"Here, let me show you." The boy took a few plastic bags and went to the freezer. He scooped handfuls of ice from the ice maker and loaded up the bags. Then he tied them together and somehow managed to make that thing look like a piece of clothing. He put it on. "Ta dah!"
Pretty impressive. (Of course two minutes after going outside, he was covered in water, but at least he was cool.)
I have one little advertisement before I end this post. My book, That Mama is a Grouch, is now available for iPad, and iPods (and whatever other iDevices are out there). There's a pretty cool feature on it, where you can actually hear me read the story. If you want to check it out, click this link
That's a clever boy! I kept trying to convince my toddler he didn't want to play outside today, but he wanted to ride his tricycle. I stayed in the shade fanning myself.ReplyDelete
Great news about your book! :)
I remember playing outside in the scortching heat when I was a kid, too. It didn't stop me either.Delete
I love reading about all the things your son creates! He's so clever. :)ReplyDelete
Congrats about your book!
I think a lot of his ideas are pretty amazing. It's fun to see what he comes up with next.Delete
haha well at least for two minutes it workedReplyDelete
I thought it was a pretty ingenious idea,even if it was short-lived.Delete
haha---i think it is a great idea--it is kinda like mine last night---our electricity was off, due to a bad storm---and i was telling robyn and frank that we should got to walmart and get some ice bags to wear---yay about your book--but i do not have any of those devices :(ReplyDelete
Great minds think alike! I'm glad your power came back on. We had the same storm blow through here, and a lot of people are still out of power.Delete
I'll guess if you want to read my book, you'll just have to read it the old-fashioned way - in hard copy ;)
It has been so hot here. On the news, they tried to bake cookie dough inside the dash of a car. The tops cooked but the bottoms were a little soft.ReplyDelete
I like the ice vest.
My husband likes the AC cold so I wear a jacket when I am in the house.
That's funny about the cookies. I bet my kids would enjoy trying that! Stay cool!Delete
Between the vest and the flashlight, that is one inventive kid you've got! Once he fully develops the ice vest I will be his first customer. That sounds like a great thing to have right now!ReplyDelete
I like the ice vest idea for those close to triple digit days. : )ReplyDelete
Happy 4th of July!
