Jolene: I’m sweating like a pig. When is this heat wave going to end?
Eric: I’ve no idea, but I’m not moving a muscle until it does. Hand me that pitcher of iced tea, would you?[audio:http://media.libsyn.com/media/eslpod/ESLPod799.mp3|titles=ESL Podcast – Dealing With the Heat]
Jolene: Get it yourself. I’m not moving until it drops below 80 degrees.
Eric: It’s not the temperature. It’s the humidity. It’s not even the dog days of summer yet and it’s scorching outside.
Jolene: It’s scorching inside, too. Why can’t that fan move any faster? Remind me why we moved into an apartment with no air conditioner?
Eric: We couldn’t afford an apartment with an air conditioner. We were lucky to get this place.
Jolene: I don’t feel so lucky right now. My legs are stuck to this chair and I’ve sweated through my clothes.
Eric: We could buy a portable air conditioner.
Jolene: We can?
Eric: Yeah, but you’d have to get up.
Jolene: Ugh, let’s do it tomorrow.
