10 Unusual Ways to Keep Cool This Summer

I’m tired of the same old ways to keep cool. Hanging out at the river, running through the sprinkler, cool towel on your forehead and spritzing yourself in front of a fan are so old school. I knew there had to be other ways to keep cool this summer. Thanks to the World Wide Web and my own noodle, I compiled a list of unusual ways to keep cool this summer. You can thank me later.

Birthday suit – If clothes are making you hot, then get rid of them. Sleep nude, do the dishes nude and do everything nude. Pretend it’s your birthday. Live it up!

Lose the ‘stache – I don’t know how the Duck Dynasty guys do it. Shave that facial hair and feel the wind on your face again.

Celibacy rules – If clothes make you hot then getting hot and heavy with someone else is sure to get you, well, hot. So don’t do it.

Wet the bed – Lightly dampen your sheets and then toss them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before bed. A wet bed never felt so good.

Hit the drive thru – Give your oven a break. Don’t slave over a hot stove. Pick up a little drive thru on the way home from work and keep your house cool.

Take a cat nap – If the heat is too unbearable when you’re awake, then just go to sleep. Find a nice cool spot, curl up like a cat and snooze away.

Double hump it like a camel – Camel’s store water in their humps so they can go long time without water. I realize you don’t have a hump, but drinking a lot of water will help keep you cool.

Get fruity – If you’re hungry, reach for a nice piece of fruit. It’s light, healthy and oh so juicy. Fruit will satisfy that hunger craving without giving you that gut bomb feeling.

Bad teeth – My dentist would kill me for suggesting this, because it’s horrible for your teeth, but chewing on ice chips does help to ward off the heat.

Shave your melon – If you’re man enough to sport the Dr. Phil or the Bruce Willis then go for it. Personally, I find bald men very attractive. So much so that I married one.
