Jolene: I’m sweating like a pig. When is this heat wave going to end?

Eric: I’ve no idea, but I’m not moving a muscle until it does. Hand me that pitcher of iced tea, would you?

Jolene: Get it yourself. I’m not moving until it drops below 80 degrees.

Eric: It’s not the temperature. It’s the humidity. It’s not even the dog days of summer yet and it’s scorching outside.

Jolene: It’s scorching inside, too. Why can’t that fan move any faster? Remind me why we moved into an apartment with no air conditioner?

Eric: We couldn’t afford an apartment with an air conditioner. We were lucky to get this place.

Jolene: I don’t feel so lucky right now. My legs are stuck to this chair and I’ve sweated through my clothes.

Eric: We could buy a portable air conditioner.

Jolene: We can?

Eric: Yeah, but you’d have to get up.

Jolene: Ugh, let’s do it tomorrow.
