This is something we've been taking note of every day for the past couple of months. So, in case you were also curious...
It's nice here today: supposed to go up to +4 degrees Celsius.
In Galveston, Texas: 21 degrees Celsius
In Roatan, Honduras: 28 degrees Celsius
In Belize City, Belize: 28 degrees Celsius
In Cozumel, Mexico: 27 degrees Celsius
I had this conversation with my MFA (my favourite aunt) today:
Me: We're going kayaking through the jungle and we will see crocodiles (though they assure us that they are *juvenile* crocodiles)
MFA: I'd tell you to pack some "crocodile repellent" but I'm not sure there is such a thing.
Me: I have some bear spray that we bought in the summer; I wonder if I should bring that.
MFA: Probably not a good idea to bring bear spray on a plane. You might be mistaken for a terrorist.
Me: Good point. Well, if we're attacked by crocodiles, I will squirt some hand sanitizer in my hand and gently rub it on his eyeball. I'm sure that'll have the same effect.
