Miss Manners says that a Lady should never perspire...

..... I could single handedly replenish a small sea or ocean!!! Today is exceptionally warm, again.... going to reach a high of 35 degrees (with humidex)!

My run went well.... except for the sweat dripping from the back of my head and pooling at the nape of my neck..... then drop by annoying drop, dripping down my back. I can feel each drop slowing moving down and it drives me insane. I can fully appreciate Chinese water torture!

Chinese water torture or commonly called in Europe Spanish Water Torture[citation needed] is the popular name for a method of water torture in which water is slowly dripped onto a person's forehead, allegedly driving the victim insane. This form of torture was first described under a different name by Hippolytus de Marsiliis in Italy in the 16th century.
