On this day over 135 years ago our temperature outside reached 111 degrees. Now Back in 1884 things were totally different than compared to our times now. Back in the really old days, some major necessities didn’t exist. Hence, why I am extremely happy I was born in 1984 than back then when necessities we use every day weren’t around.

My boss shared quite the historic picture from the Facebook page Remember In El Paso When earlier today with some interesting facts. I don’t even want to imagine what it was like to be around back then in the hot summer days. But there is a movie that can explain why I am content being born on the time I was. The movie A Million Ways To Die In The West has a particular scene (above) that describes how terrible it was in the American West.

Now just a few things to me that would make it terrible is not having deodorant, air conditioner, perfume, and lack of refrigeration which caused foods to spoil. Can you imagine standing in a room full of people sweating in the summer who aren’t wearing deodorant? Clearly, hygiene wasn't taken care of since our most important needs weren't around back then. Not only that, not knowing then about having to keep certain foods refrigerated and getting sick because of it. Plus, being a woman I don't even want to think about living in those times when it was THAT time of the month!

It wasn't until 1910 when people had air conditioner and deodorant that became a blessing. We sit here and complain about how freaking hot it is outside when we’re lucky to have what we have now. I mean now we have water parks to help stay fresh during these hot times. When probably back then you would jump in a metal bin where horses drink from to get fresh. All I can say is I am glad to be in our times now instead of the times back then.
