is it hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk?

it may seem that some of us in the south have been complaining
too much about the heat.  all errands have to be finished by 10:00
a.m., because after that the temperatures are dangerous.  it was 98
degrees at 9:00 p.m. and 105 a couple of hours before that.  cabin
fever is setting in.

yesterday afternoon i was looking out the kitchen window at my
brick porch and thought it was truly hot enough to fry an egg.

"a true friend thinks you're a good egg even though you're
slightly cracked."  bernard meltzer

"you cannot go on indefinitely being just a decent, ordinary
egg.  we must be hatched or go bad."  c.s. lewis
