summer humidity at 22 degree lat 113 long

Posted by Hippo Bean at 12:51 AM
Not always but when the traffic on 101 beyond Fair Oaks is jammed, the Hippo would take the Lawrence exit and cruised down on Tasman, and inevitably passed by the Santa Clara Youth Soccer park. At this time of the late afternoon, the bright fluorescent lights are lite and the younglings are out practicing soccer. The ambience of the white lights reminisce the volleyball games back home. She would shower after dinner and as soon as she steps out of the cool shower, she would begin to perspire. The summer humidity is enormous. she would then walk with friends to the elementary school outdoor park and witness the volleyball game. She watches her bro and Ernesto play against each other with their teams. She sits on the steps of the spectators stand and puts her foot down on Ernesto's long gym pants, because she would know that after the game, he would come and ask her to please remove her foot so he can put his long pants on. And after the game, she walks home with her friends, another ball game in the summer heat, another evening wasted. She walks home with her perspiration from the humidity of 22 degree latitude 113 degree longitude, another hollow teenage summer evening at her tropical home.
