A Hot Summer Day
A Hot Summer Day :
A man staying in the cool and calm atmosphere of his house can hardly know what heat can do to a person. We sometimes do feel hot in spite of the fan but that heat is bearable. What about the man on the road? Only a person how has had an experience of this can know the difference and appreciate the comfort which we find only by staying within our four walls. It is difficult to know A Hot Summer Day.
I dread heat and cold equally. But once on an xceptinsally hot day, I had to remain out of doors on business. I started at eight in the morning, when the heat was somewhat bearable.
I thought I would finish whatever I had to do before it got unbearably hot. But alas! I had not taken into account the hurdle that was to come that day before me. Every step threw me behind schedule. At noon, worn hot and miserable, I still found me on the road.
During these hours my clothes got wet with perspiration ad dried up so many times that I made quite a clumsy figure. During this period I had drunk water like a fish.
Now I thought one again to refresh myself with cold drink. I entered a restaurant. I demanded a cold drink and the bearer there must have taken me for a mad man as they watched me consume some four or five glasses of it. You cannot imagine how much at ease I felt inside that air conditioned restaurant. I almost thought of sitting down there for the rest of the day. But I had to move out to finish my work the day.
Here on the road, for the first time in the day, I saw a man who was in a greater trouble than myself and who looked more uneasy than I. He was a bald-headed middle-aged man. As he went along I saw to my horror that he went with a bundle on his head. I could not be mad but he was surely almost mad with heat. I cannot say whether he actually went mad by the item he reached home. It made me almost nervous when I realized that my conditions were much better. The next thing I did was to take a bus and return home.
That day was a day I spent in hell. Next day I read in the newspaper that man had died due to heat. Such was the intensity of summer.

One hot summer day, Jay and his friends were playing outside. The sun shined down on Jay and his friends as they kicked a soccer ball back and fourth. Soccer was Jay's favorite sport to play. Almost every day Jay would invite his friends from his neighborhood to come out and play soccer in the street. Jay dreamed of one day being a professional soccer player. He imagined shooting a goal and hearing the roar of thousands of people as they cheered his name throughout the soccer stadium. Jay knew it would require a lot of practice if he wished to make his dream a reality.
One day, as the sun was beaming down on the street where Jay and his friends played earlier, an ice-cream truck approached. As soon as Jay heard the ice-cream truck's music playing, he ran outside his house with two dollars in his hand. Jay looked around to see where the ice-cream truck was. As soon as he spotted it down the street he bolted towards it. Jay's friends had arrived first and were already asking the ice-cream man for a cone of their favorite flavor of ice-cream. This gave Jay time to think about what flavor to get. "Should I get chocolate or vanilla?" Jay asked himself. "What's it going to be, son?" the ice-cream man asked Jay when he noticed he was the last kid standing without an ice-cream cone. "I'll have Pistachio, please," Jay responded after some hesitation.
This summer had turned out to be the best so far for Jay. Tomorrow he would play soccer once more, and if the ice-cream truck came around, he would ask his parents for another two dollars. Jay was not looking forward to starting his school year in two weeks.
