The heat

Now I've been living in the desert for who knows how long yet every summer I, along with others who have been here just as long, say "It's so hot!" Like it's so surprising, like we weren't expecting it, like it's headline news. I mean we live in the desert for crying out loud! It's supposed to be hot! But no, every conversation goes something like:
"It's so hot out there."
"I know."

There should be a look that communicates that. Not the stink eye, not the crook eye, not the evil eye, but the "it's so hot" eye. That'd save a lot of energy.
