Like the weather war of “hottest air temperature on record” between Death Valley (United States) and Al Aziziyah (Libya), my body has waged war with sweat over the last few days. Although my current GPS location is not in either of those places, it feels like it.

Sweat messes everything up. Glazing should be for cakes, ceramics, and hair goop. I do not like to be glazed in sweat. Contrary to what some say, sweat isn’t sexy unless the person doing the sweating is actually sexy.

Some societies and cultures think sweat is a sign of fear, anxiety, or nervousness.

It’s really just a sign that it’s hellishly hot.
