35 Thoughts You Have During A Sweaty Heatwave

Because there’s hot, *hot*, and then off-the-scale, frickin’ sweltering…

1. Ah sunshine, finally. We’ve been waiting for your arrival.

2. Woaaahh sunshine. You’re not messing are you?

3. *Checks weather app for the tenth time…like, actually obsessed*

4. 30 degrees. Whoop. It’s hotter than holiday.

5. But the reality is…I gotta go to work.

6. What do I even wear in this heat?

7. *Digs out holiday clothes*

8. *Decides half of it is wildly inappropriate for the office*

9. A white dress from 2015? That’ll do.

10. I must do a summer-work-clothes haul. Asap.

11. *Dreads sweaty work commute*

12. Yup. My sweaty commute fears are entirely justified.

13. It’s 8am and I’m nestled in some guy’s armpit.

14. And it’s fruity. He surely can’t have showered today.

15. I have boob sweat. My boobs are literally sweating.

16. Back sweat too.

17. In fact, sweat *everywhere*

18. Or have I come on my period?! WTF. Please no. Not in this flimsy white dress.

19. I’m pretty sure that’s just sweat. Phew.

20. Can you see damp patches though?

21. My hair’s frizzy too.

22. Perhaps summer’s just not for me.

23. *Arrives at work*

24. Erhmmm. Why is it freezing in here? Someone turn down the aircon.

25. *Sits shivering at desk with goosebumps*

26. Maybe I should find a park to sit in at lunchtime? That’ll be nice.

27. *Catches some rays with a packet sandwich meal deal. Living the dream.*

28. Along with 1000 other people.

29. And I haven’t got suncream.

30. I’m burning!

31. Better go back in.

32. *Spends the afternoon staring out of the window and daydreaming about the beach*

33. At least it’s nearly the weekend.

34. *Checks weather app again*

35. It’s forecast rain. Sigh.
