Heat stroke remedy

The heat is like a blanket; you try to toss it off but it just settles back onto you. Even ice water is just a temporary relief.

The fans and A/C are just noise so I opt for my Japanese fans to move the air in front of my face. Yes, that feels good. But what feels even better is to peel an ice cold fig, the honey dripping through your fingers and on your chin as you bite into the soft seed filled fruit, a little crunch, a little heaven, yes, that feels really good. Do this several times and the heat is all but forgotten.
A jar of peeled figs for a mid-morning snack at work.
