No one would like to enjoy the burning the sun. During summer every one stays back at home or office instead of roaming around in the hot sun. Sweating all day on a hot summer day is what every one would like to stay away from, stinky clothes, smelling yucky. Just kidding. What would you like to do on a hot summer day? What makes you feel better. Do you 1) Stay back home and watch the television, 2) Go out and watch a movie in a well furnished air conditioned theater, 3) Set out to a near by beach undress and enjoy the beach waters, 4) Sit down in the bath tub and soak yourself in the cold water, 5) Go to a cold place like Alaska? 6) Go partying on a resort, 7) Grab a beer from your fridge and enjoy till you fall asleep. What would you do.Please do share your idea and experiences. I just stay back home watching the television and enjoying the shower 2 r 3 times a day On the weekends and a couple of beers would do good.

You can also give your own reasons and it is not important to choose from my options only.

Relax at home with a nice tall glass of fresh lemonade and either watch TV or just relax on the couch and listen to relaxing music, this usually keeps me calm during the hottest days. My husband and I enjoy this greatly. Eventually we wind up falling asleep but at least it will be cool in the house.

I will take baths at least 3-4 times, not an average bath. I will add salt, lemon and some ice cubes to make my bath refreshing. I will srink cold water and fruit juices as much as possible, and obviously avoid going outside if it is not mandatory. While I will be in home I will choose to pass time by watching coolest( I mean pictures of coolest places) television channels. Now I am adding the last thing that I will must do, that is to collect the news of weather from diffrent news channels!!!!!!(just kidding)

I really hate to go out in hot climate and choose to go only if it is very important.I feel tired soon after going in sunny days and after coming home i cant take my food properly & feel dizzy. Your first option is always my choice to pass this hot weather..its nice to stay home , relax and watch your favourite program.In addition i will take some chill fresh fruit juice in the mid day to keep my body cool. But if i have to go to movie with friends ..never skip even if it is hot...

I have to say going to the beach lol. Myself and the kids think it's great although my partner moans and groans about it. He's not one for sitting doing nothing. I should suggest that he take his scripts and get working on rewriting them. I try to make the most of the summer, although they do last for a while, but I think thats because our winters are pretty miserable. It rains from November right through till March/April.

Like you, I prefer to stay at home and simply surf in the net. The hot summer is my worst enemy. My allergies come alive during this time around. I can't even stay under the sun too long. In times like I felt the urge for a swim, I will go to a nearby water hydrotherapy center. Its an indoor swimming club with lots of amenities to choose and splurge on. I also need to bathe 3 times a day. I wish this hot summer months will be over. I feel like I can't breathe with the humidity.

Hmmmm..... here are some of stuff I'd do to cool off. 1) Drink lots of ice cold fresh fruit juices. Watermelon is great. 2) Jump into the swimming pool and stay there till the sun goes down and when it's cooler then. 3) Hide in my room with the air conditioner on at full blast 4) Read some books at the local library. There's air conditioning there too. 5) Meet some friends at a cafe. We can all cool off there!.....lol

i really hate the summer. All that sun! All that heat! i just hate hate hate it. If i had the choice, i woul dbe anywhere that is well air-conditioned, which is not my home. i do enjoy movies, so i would probably do that if i had the option. i hate the sun so much that i carry a black parasol to shield myself from it.

if given the chance id rather go to the beach enjoy the sea as the sun goes down. or just sitting in the seashore under a tree and have a cold coke or an ice tea would be great. but now cant have that chance yet coz i have to work 6 times a week and during my day off il just stay at home and do the laundry and then rest. but i would plan to do it before summer will be over.
