As anyone that knows me can tell you, I am NOT an outdoorsy person. Camping in a flimsy tent, hiking up a mountain, canoeing down a river, or even walking to my car to me all sound just horrible. Give me a couch, air conditioning, and close proximity to a refrigerator and I’m a happy person. So it will shock no one when I say I’m not really a fan of Summer. Oh sure, so people see it as the best part of the year where they get to do all the activities that they’ve wanted to do since being snowed in all winter. But to me Summer is just boiling hot temperatures, a swarm of blood sucking bugs, and pools filled with kids not bothering to get out to pee. There’s nothing worse then showering and getting ready for the day all to have it go to waste the second you step outside. Sweating is not a fun activity to me. I’m wet, I stink, I spend the rest of the day with wet underwear. Let’s not even talk about getting into your car! When I was a kid we had a 78′ Toyota Corolla with all pleather seats. Talk about 3rd degree burns! And we were living in California at the time! Cars just sit there in the direct sunlight and become an oven for humans. You know those days when you can actually SEE the heat coming off the sidewalk. Beaches are a big part of summertime as well and coming from a person who, let’s just say originated the “Dad Bod” look, removing my shirt in public never really appealed to me. Plus I’m very very Irish as well so my pale ass skin, besides blinding others, will burn in under 5 minutes. The only option is slathering myself in SPF 5000 and who doesn’t want to spend the day at the beach oily, sweaty, and getting sand in every inch of my person. Well, I guess I’ve ranted enough. You get the idea that Summer just isn’t for me. So you can understand that my summertime activities might be a little different from what others might do this time of year. But maybe I’m not the only one who will be doing this. Maybe you guys feel the same way as me. So that’s why for this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” I came up with the hashtag #HowIActuallySpendMeSummer and I was right! We trended for over 6 hours with this one. So join me next to this fan in front of a giant block of ice and check out the top list below. And don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next chill adventure of “Hashtag, You’re It”
