Black Thought (Rising Down)
Summer is here! You don't need me to tell you that. Unless you're somewhere in the Pacific Northwest like Flyyest...it's prolly pretty damn HOT where you are right now. I've been in the South for most of my life. I don't recall it being THIS hot...THIS soon. I mean, it's only June. What's gonna happen when August rolls around? It was 99 here in Atlanta last week. I guess it'll be 120 in August??
Extreme heat...tornadoes rippin the Midwest...heavy rains are flooding towns in Iowa...the list goes on and on. Even though earthquakes aren't related to the weather, we've all seen the destruction that was caused a few weeks ago.
They are expecting 6-9 major hurricanes this hurricane season. That's a scary thought when you consider what happened after Katrina.
Something is wrong, y'all. Something is severely wrong. I dunno what it is. Global warming is sumthin, aint it?
Since we KNOW it's gonna be hot, there are several ways that you can beat the heat. Here are some tips...
1. Stay inside! Sounds simple but you'd be surprised how many people think it's cool to take a jog at noon to "burn calories". That's not all that you'll burn. You might pass out, fool!
2. Drink plenty of liquids. And I don't mean beer! I have a rule. If I'm outside at a barbecue, then I don't start drinking until the sun goes down. Liquor and beer along with the summer heat will drain you.
3. Don't spend a lotta time laying in the sun. I don't have to tell this to most black folk. LOL. I love my dark chocolate hue but I'm not tryin to expose my skin to these rays that are beaming down from the sky.
4. Dress light. Take the jeans off and put some shorts on. I don't care how big or skinny your legs are. Just make sure you put on that lotion, baby!
5. Always keep a "cool" towel with you. If you're gonna outside, then you're gonna sweat.
