If this is your first Louisiana summer; bless your heart.  Yes, it's this hot every summer.  Oh, and no, it isn't as hot as it's going to get yet.  This summer is setting itself up to be another record breaker, much like last year.  So, as the mercury begins to rise, try these tricks to keep your cool.

1.  Lick your wrists.  Monkeys lick their wrists when they're hot.  It works for humans too.  Of course, you COULD just run them under cold water for 10 seconds . . . but licking them looks like a whole lot more fun.

2.  Get the hot salsa.  Spicy foods actually cool you down.

3.  Keep your lotion in the fridge.  That way, when you put it on, it will keep you cold for a while.

4.  Turn off the TV.  Modern TVs generate a TON of heat.  So when you're not watching, turn it off.

5.  Put your mattress on the floor.  Since heat rises, the closer you get to the floor, the better it will feel.  You should also put your fans on the floor and angle them upward.

6.  Eat frozen yogurt instead of ice cream.  Yogurt has a higher water content than ice cream, so it's better for keeping your body temperature down.
