Our current vignette begins with a description of the so-called heat index and an explanation of why humidity makes a hot day feel so awful. Just like New York, the summers in Tokyo are often extremely muggy. High humidity levels make the air feel hotter, and combined with high temperatures, the situation can be quite deadly, especially for older folks. Now have you ever gotten sick in the summer heat, Heather? muggy 蒸し暑い、うっとうしい
Yes, I have been laid low a few times. One incident a few years ago was especially scary, because I was out with my daughter at a time. I was pushing her stroller when suddenly my head started to throb and felt very dizzy. It was a real effort just to keep standing. Luckily we weren’t too far from home, and I managed to get us back. Partially thanks to the stroller acting as a crutch of sorts. When we got inside I went right to bed with an icepack out of the freezer and I was all right after a few hours of rest. But it gave me a real scare. Putting a cold pack on the neck or the armpit really does help cool us down, doesn’t it? In my personal experience, that’s been much more effective than putting it on the forehead.
