Hey! Good to see you.
How have you been?
Not bad, you?
Hot. Too hot. Can you believe this summer we’re having?
Tell me about it. I’ve been working as a roofer this summer.
Ouch. That must be brutal in this heat.
It is. Somehow I haven’t fainted yet while on a roof.
Well, staying alive in the heat is all about staying hydrated.
I know. I drink at least three Gatorades a day.
Dude, I don’t know if that’s good for you.
Why wouldn’t it be?
Gatorade has a lot of sugar. In this heat your best bet is just water.
But I need my electrolytes to keep me going.
I don’t know, people have done fine with just water for thousands of years.
Yeah but have those people ever had to roof a house in a hundred degree weather?
Yeah. Well, some of them must have.
Well, too much sugar or not, Gatorade gets me through the hottest days.
More power to you, man. I get to work in air conditioning, so I shouldn’t really complain.
Lucky. What are you doing?
Just a boring office job, but it keeps me out of the sun so I’m happy.
You’re not a real “summer guy” are you?
Nope. I’m just waiting for fall to get here so I can feel a cool breeze on my face.
Yeah, that will be nice.
Until then, I’m beating the heat with plenty of water and AC.
Well, enjoy your temperature-controlled work environment.
And you enjoy the sun. I gotta run but I’m sure I’ll talk to you later.
Alright. It was good running into you. Catch you later.
