43 Ways to Keep Cool

Filed under: summer — jrice @ 12:25 pm

Yo, 43 Folders. How about some advice?
See, I’m from Miami. I lived at least six years in Gainesville. I’ve lived in the desert. But man, it is hot.

And we stink. A few hours of running errands, getting a marriage license, and eating ice cream, and now, we smell. It’s humid. It’s hot. And I haven’t sweated this much since my five minute bike rides to the UF campus turned into five minutes of perspiration, followed by another 15 after I stopped.

What we need is 43 ways to not sweat, to not take two showers a day, and to not stink! Other than: drink beer, what’s a good life hack? I seem to have forgotten all the things I used to do when I lived in warmer climates. Oh wait. I remember. I sweated and stank.


  1. 1. Drink beer
    2. A/C
    3. Move north
    4. Suck it up
    5. Suck it up
    6. Suck it up
    43. Suck it up

  4. Yeah, even though I lived in Texas most of my life, I am near tears today. I can’t suck it up anymore. NO MORE! Now I know why there are more murders in the summertime.
