Some say that “Necessity is the Mother of Invention,” but there are other compelling forces out there – besides mere necessity – that bring out our inner “MacGyvers!” Sometimes one of those compelling forces is…being too damned hot!
Case in point a hot, hot weekend day three years ago – my husband and I had reached the point where we didn’t want to just “hibernate” in the AC, and we wanted to get some fresh air – but not wilt like hothouse flowers.
So I got out the sprinkler! It’s not a fancy sprinkler, it’s a three-headed sprinkler that is essentially an extension to a hose. My mission was to set it up so that the water could spray down on us…so I got out the patio chairs and wedged the sprinkler heads in the seats so they pointed outward – toward us.
