“Warm smell of colitas rising up through the air” – Hotel California / The Eagles

My air conditioning is broken.
The fact that this calamity has gone unreported by the news services and TV stations is an act of journalistic malpractice in and of itself, but that still does not change one fact:
My air conditioning is broken.

Suddenly driving to work becomes a small nightmare.
Suddenly a traffic jam is more than just a minor nuisance.
Suddenly I can’t hear the music for the wind flapping from the open window.

Suddenly, life is not the same.

One unexpected side-effect: I now smell stuff when I drive.
Today’s drive from work carried with it the lingering aromas of Artichokes and Dust. Not a common combination, and not one that would usually spark one’s interest (not to mention whet one’s appetite).
In this case, however, it put me in a state of mind of a long day’s journey – out and about, working and walking and getting myself all dusty and dirty, and then coming home to a warm shower and a hearty supper. What vegetable would I rather have as a lovable leafy lunch than these tasty thistles?

Ok, ok. I’ll stop this now before it gets completely out of hand.
