I’m Not Melting

MeltingJune 24, 2013– Dear Secret Diary.  In the spirit of Alan, I am always looking for playful ways to create Milkshake Moments for others (which ends up being fun for me).

Emily and I were walking in Central Park today.  It was one of those incredibly hot and sticky days, the kind where you start dripping even if you’re just sitting still in a chair.

We walked by a woman at an outdoor merchandise stand who gave us a friendly hello. We said hi back.

Then I asked, “Are you melting?”

“No,” she responded with a smile.

I replied, “Well of course not, you’re not the Wicked Witch of the West!”

She laughed, no doubt considering the fate of the Wicked Witch of the West moaning “I’m melting, I’m melting!!” from the water Dorothy threw on her.

I felt good about that one.
