Wednesday, June 27th: 11am KT> Experiment Station 4 $1250
I woke up this morning really early, way before my alarm.
I kicked off all the covers, because it was already super hot in my bedroom!
Today was predicted to be one of the hottest days in history, and I could already feel it heating up, early in the morning!
*** RING RING *** BUZZ BUZZ ***
My alarm goes off.. "Finally" I think to myself...
I feel like I've been laying in bed for about 6 hours, trying to go back to sleep in the heat.
You see, I don't have air conditioning, so when it gets this hot, I just can't sleep.
I get up and take a cold shower to help cool myself off, and end up spending so much time in there that I'm almost late for work.
I showed up to Tabby's just on time and was sure she was going to put me outside again!
"Please, don't, Ms Von Meow." I plead...
"Don't what, child?" she asks?
"Please, don't put me outside in this heat, I don't think I can manage to paint all those fences!" I cry!
"Oh... It's too hot for anyone to work outside, I'm sending you over to Ms Birdy's, she needs you to type up some papers."
"Oh thank you thank you" I say (knowing the Ms. Birdy has some of the best air conditioning in Webkinz World!)
I trudge through the scorching heat over to Ms. Birdy's and, as I walk in the door, am treated to the coldest blast of air you could ever imagine!
It is so incredibly refreshing that I don't realize I am standing there with the door wide open...
"Close the door!" Ms. Birdy shouts!
"Oops, sorry.. I--Good morning!" I say, cheerfully!
"Good morning, Merthyn, here's what I have for you to do today." she says, dropping a giant file box full of paper on my toes.
"OUCH!" I yell, jumping back.
"Oh, sorry dear, it's just so heavy for an older bird like me..." she says softly.
I managed to get through all of the work in just enough time and was paid!
On my way home from work, I had no choice but to stop by Arte's as I needed some kind of rest or refreshment before I continued any further.
I opened the door to his shop and received the opposite effect from Ms. Birdy's.. A blast of HOT air came rushing out of the door!!
Arte's shop was empty, and even Arte was nowhere to be found.
There were fans placed all over the shop, trying to move the hot, stuffy air, but nothing was working.
It was incredibly loud with all the fans running and I tried shouting "Arte!" a few times, but I could barely hear my own shouts, let alone have someone else hear them.
I walked past the counter, toward the back of the shop, where it was even more humid and stuffy!
"Where could Arte be?" I thought to myself...
"Arte! Arte! I'm dying in here big guy!"
"Don't you have any A/C in here?"
"There's gotta be a cold room in here!!"
Then I realize... there IS a cold room at Arte's, his newest store room...
The HOCKEY store room!!
All the ice from the hockey flooring keeps that room cold all the time!!
I rush around the corner, turn left, right, then left and grab the door handle to the hockey room.
"Ahhhh... nice and cold.." I think as I throw open the door.
Again, I am treated to the wonderful feeling of fresh, cold air blowing across me, but this time I rush in and close the door behind me.
That's when I hear something that sounds like someone sawing through logs.
I instantly recognize the sound... Arte's snoring!!
I walk around the shelving and over to a corner where one of the hockey beds is unpacked and there, curled up on top of it, is Arte.
I decide not to wake him and walk over to the nearest couch and lay down on it.
"Aahhh.. this is the life.." I say out loud.
Arte stirs.. "Ehhh?? Where am I? Is this the Artic Circle? I knew it was too good to be true I've never escaped! I'll be he fore-Oh wait... I'm in my hockey store room... Whew!"
I start to giggle and he notices that I'm laying on the couch.
"So ya found the coolest place in my shop, eh?" he asks?
"On a day like today, I don't think we've got a choice, Arte!"
"Yer right about that! I'm gonna catch some more ZZZ's. Here's the list, stay as long as ya like, I know you're too cheap to get air conditioning!" he laughs!
"Thanks Arte! And.. you're right!"
I take the list and stay for an hour in the refreshing Hockey Storeroom, thinking about how hot it's going to be when I head home!
