  • I'm going to have a heatstroke party this year. We can sit in the air conditioned dark & recover w popsicles & ice packs. + Jello shots #
  • I have white friends who handle the sun better than I do. It's embarrassing. But since I hate to miss out, summer = heatstrokelandia. #
  • OMG!! “@goodglobalcitiz: @dcap Heatstroke is terrible. I got so dehydrated in Thailand I went temporarily deaf.” #
  • I'm also visiting Mexico again 8/12. This time I'll b prepared & do my ancestors proud by not being heat hivey & miserable 1/2 the time. #
