Hayley's a genius

I spent this evening eating Chinese food in the park and chasing Hayley's niece and nephews. They wanted to play tag and who was I not to oblige? Even after I said I was done, Porter told me I only got a two minute break. I wondered why I didn't get orange slices and Capri Sun, but true to his word, Porter dragged me back to the playground. Granted, round two wasn't quite as intense because Annie made a few crazy rules like I couldn't climb the slides and other playground equipment. I sorta broke the rules after they hid in the middle of the curvy slide.

But all of this is still just setting you up to explain why Hayley is a genius. And I have to keep you in suspense just a little longer. So I was quite sweaty and hot after playing tag. This is even worse for me than normal people, as I am a human heater anyway. I'll fog cars up in April, it's so bad. So we get back to Hayley's house, I drink a couple glasses of ice water and while it was very refreshing, I was still a little hot. Not sweating, but still hot. Then as I'm siting trying to cool off, she hands me one of those giant ice packs and told me to put it on my belly. Oh. My. Gosh. NOTHING has ever been so effective.

So that's it. That's the end of my 45 minute cool downs. Ice pack on the belly and done. It's pure genius.

I once saw a commercial that said something like, "1/3 of Americans think they sweat more than normal." My statistician side is going to come out a little here, but what does that even mean? It's really the most redonkulus think I've ever heard in my life.
