Today was day number four at my new job. Today was also day number four without air conditioning at my new job. When you are sitting on a shop floor of a giant metal roofed building with furnances, drills and grit blasters going nonstop and there is no AC, you get a little sweaty. When the actual temperature outside is 94 with a heat index of 110, you're lucky if you don't get pit stains. And after a day of this, there was no way that the fried eggs I imagined having for dinner this morning were going to happen. I needed something lighter, cooler. So after work, my pit-stained self got the fixings for a spicy black bean hummus.
