“Is it hot? Use a spoon!”
June 20, 2017 9:03am CST
There is a joke in our place and possibly in our country, about what to respond to questions in a different perspective. This joke is almost always answered by either me or my sister when any one between us gives the question. It goes like this: If it is hot (especially coming in to the house after staying out under the scorching heat of the sun), we reply, “Use a spoon”. When we sip hot soup or hot coffee, and we say, “It is hot”, the most amusing response would be, “Use an umbrella”. “It is hot”, when we touch something hot, and we answer with a “Use your sunglasses”. Ahh! That is the funny side of a serious person. PS: I am making this ridiculous discussion tonight for tomorrow because we will be having a10-hour power blackout, again, as always, for the nth time around, over and over again!

I'm not sure just how hot it will be, but I've written about a heat wave that is record-breaking for this time of year. I guess they all need spoons, except that there was a reporter yesterday who had a device that measured the temperature of a car door handle. It was 150F/65.55C!! Are there enough spoons to go around? LOL
@CoralLevang if only our forests here are still full of thick leaves from trees, it would be better to stay outside the house when it is hot inside. our school with centuries-old acacia trees has new buildings and these trees were cut down. no more shades from trees in my school/university
Haha I know this joke! One of my classmate wayback in my elementary days, he used this joke to make fun to our teacher. This is the convo: Teacher: Class, can you feel it, Its very hot here in our room Classmate: Use a spoon then My teacher got angry and she said get out! Hahaha lol
