It's so hot, you could _____________

Can you fill in the blank?

Here are two appropriate subtitles:

"How to occupy your boys on a lazy hot afternoon when you're not in the mood for the pool"


"Hope our neighbors behind us who we barely know don't think we're odd"

Yes folks, it is hot, hot, hot. (Go ahead and cue the music and get ready to form a conga line: "Ole, ole! Ole, ole! Ole, ole! Ole, ole!")

So hot in fact, we thought we'd give the ole' (in this case a shortened version of "old," not the Spanish word for "bravo!") adage, "It's so hot, you could fry an egg," a try.

So first, R placed the cast iron pan outside in the hot sun for about 2 hours, then G poured 1 tablespoon oil into the pan:

We waited about 45 minutes (to let the oil heat up), then R cracked an egg:

About 5 minutes later:

Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Darn! So we tried to see if this would work:

Nope. Which lead R to exclaim, "It's so hot, you could try to fry an egg, but it won't work."

Life is sweet,

I watch the Today show every morning and they heated up mac and cheese (freezer), a frozen pizza and then tried to fry and egg. The guy said the pizza and mac and cheese were pretty well heated and not bad tasting after 2 hours, but the egg looked VILE! No one wanted to taste it and I can't say I blame them!

Our power went out yesterday for about 5 hours and I wound up packing the kids up and driving to Amish country where my in-laws live for some ac relief (Ironic, I know!). We did the best we could in the baby pool at home for as long as we could stand it, but in the end... we're wimps. :)
