As someone so eloquently put it on the news, this past week has been like “living in a dog’s mouth”….
Personally, I’d like to move on from living in a steam room, from my makeup melting off my face, from the sleepless nights in a hot bedroom, from the sad reprieve of my air conditioned office, from weighing the opportunity cost of a trip down the street. This Florida girl did not move to DC to spend her summers 10 degrees hotter and more humid than back home. But I digress.
There have been countless smoothies and juices flowing over here. It’s the only thing that sounds moderately appealing when you’re sweating away your fluid intake for the day. The roar of the blender has been music to my ears, and my mornings have looked a little like this:
Add: Almond milk, pineapple, strawberries, coconut
Insert: Whirllllllll and blurbles of the blender
(Optional) Mute: if roommates are sleeping
Pinch: handfuls of spinach and Amazing Grass Chocolate (review to come)
