Not so hot

I just spent the week in Phoenix, and man am I glad to be back in L.A. The reasons are numerous, but the primary one is the temperature. It was over 110 degrees every day I was there! Never have I been so happy to be sitting in my loft in early July “suffering” the oh-so-high temperature of 82.

I coughed the entire time I was there. The people I talked to there told me the air quality was really bad in the summer and that was probably why. I was skeptical. (I grew up there, and it wasn’t that bad back in the ’80s, but their population has grown exponentially since then.) Then I came back to L.A. and within an hour of landing in our fair city, my cough stopped. Seriously.

Who knew the air in L.A. was so good?

(Relatively speaking.)

  1. That happens to me every time I leave the area. I get a wicked cough and have trouble breathing. I’ve got mild asthma, so I use an inhaler when I get out, but the cough is gone in three or fours days. Then, the second I set foot back in LA County, the cough hits again and similarly flees a few days later.

    Now, after that charming TMI, I’ll just say that I’m glad I’m not the only one who seems to have a jacked allergic reaction to leaving Southern California.

  2. I don’t usually have this problem – I travel almost every week for work and don’t get the weird cough/allergy action in most places. It might have been all mental for me, since I grew up there, and omg the memories.

    Also, omg the allergies. I can’t even go there in the spring when the orange blossoms are blooming.
