Sit in my lazy boy nekked with bags of frozen peas under my armpits. - That's just for fun. To really beat the heat I got one of those Slush Puppy machines and I fill the tub with it. Tasty bath yum. But seriously I don't have anything to beat the heat except one of those little hand held fans and some hot beer.

I roll in it happily like an old boar hog, kicking up a cloud of dust and flies. All I have to do is think about minus 20 degree temperatures, bundled up in four or five layers of clothing and still having the cold bite at my face, hands and toes to make this feel like a treat!

Just sit around and wait until Lebron goes cold in the fourth quarter. Seems to work just fine.

run the garden hose on the air conditioner for a few minutes then run inside and stand in the cool breeze.

Years ago I remember driving through a trailer court here in town and seeing a mobile home with one of those sprinkle water hoses (with holes punched in it) stretched lengthwise across the top with the water coming out of it. I believe water was included in the lot rent so cooling the outside of the trailer was probably better than running the AC.
