The heat here is stifling. And I’m not just saying that!
My three story office building has been without air conditioning since late last week. Each day has been hotter than the day before, so we’ve taken to having Popsicle parties in the afternoons.
Everyone has a fan blowing on them and I don’t think there’s a woman in the building who isn’t going sleeveless today.
Let me preface the next part of my story by saying that because of the sticky heat, I’ve been wearing summery dresses all week because they’re cooler than any of my other work clothing options. And today, I was especially excited to put on my new dress. I splurged on it when I got my last raise. As in, I fell in love with the dress when I saw it online, and knew I had to have it, only to discover that it comes from a company in London!
Despite this, I ordered it anyway, and have the cutest pair of green wedge heels to wear with it. I’ve been waiting for the perfect day to wear the dress, and decided this was the day. Not only is it hotter than a furnace in here, but I have a little party to go to after work. So I’ve been happily wearing my new dress all day. Until…
I was sitting here, trying to get some work done, eating a cherry Popsicle as my fan blew warm air on me. I looked down and noticed that my red Popsicle was melting and spilling all over my dress. They weren’t little spots either, they were big! I just wanted to cry.
A little dramatic, I know, but you see, I never have luck getting stains out. I’m one of those people who is notorious for spilling stuff (usually on a new item of clothing) and then having to throw out the clothes because the stain won’t come out.
Thankfully, our receptionist had a Tide to Go pen in her purse. I’m happy to say that all the red Popsicle stains are now history! And after seeing that pen in action, I highly recommend everyone should go get one to keep on hand!
