Estivation, Torpor, Dormancy

Kage Baker loved autumn. So do I. And if it ever gets here, I will be a lot happier and more active.

But in the meantime … the heat came back, the humidity has risen to 35%, and I am hiding. Also heat-sick and now fighting the rising tide of air pressure in my sinuses. Or maybe the air pressure in my head is falling. I can’t tell which direction damned things are going, only that they seem to inflating and deflating at will. And random. My head must be pulsing like the veined melon-head of 1950’s movie mutant.

Time to resume estivation. Torpor and dormancy are my shield and buckler.

    Thirty-five-percent humidity? Ha! It is to laugh! Here in NJ we consider that to be refreshing pleasant.
    But then we’ve all grown gills, as befiit members of the Esoteric Order of Dagon.
