Wow, do I have a massive headache right now.

I've had one sip of water in the the last six and a half hours. It's 104 degrees out. And I just spent 45 minutes in traffic.

I don't care how much air conditioning you have, a car in bumper-to-bumper traffic that's been out in the sun all day never cools off. Not physically possible. Of course it helps that it's half-way to boiling out, too.

Anyway, to back up, today is the first day of the Holy month of Ramdan where Muslims fast during the daylight hours. And since Dubai is an Islamic nation, it's illegal to eat, drink, smoke or even chew gum out in the daylight for the next month. That includes in your car as well as inside say, a classroom if one was subbing all day at a local high school.

I know, I know, it could be worse, I could be one of the poor construction workers out in the 104 degree heat without water, but I'm not and I never would be so your argument is moot.

I have to go lie down in a dark room now. More later.

Yup, that sucks. Do you feel as though you are some addict hiding in a closet at work stealing a sip of water? Cause that would be awesome, hiding your secret from even your wife.....water junkie!!!

Dubai is a nation?

Also: This is horrible. If you want, I'll call my friends to come liberate/colonize your little place so you can get some good, Jesusy water into your system.

Also, we'll bring a NESN feed.
