I like #8. ;)

Clara Gillow Clark said...

How about SULTRY and Sweltering? Remember the movie with Billy Crystal and Danny DeVito--Throw Momma From the Train? Billy Crystal has writer's block because he can't get the right word for humid, muggy?

LR said...

Nice ones!

I wish it was hot here. Brr.

Happy weekend!

Linda Kage said...

You know, I never realized just how many definitions there really are of hot. Hmm. Interesting.

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda - Yeah :)

Clara - "Owen, you clumsy poop!" Nah, I don't remember that movie - LOL. I love the word 'sultry'.

LR - I'd email you some hot, but it would fry your computer :)

Linda - Gets your imagination going, doesn't it?

VR Barkowski said...

Not a big fan of hot in general, but 8 & 5 have a nice ring to them and when it comes to eats, 6 can't be beat!

Heidi Windmiller said...

Ha! Love it! I started laughing at number 1--radioactive, which is exactly how it's felt to me over the last few days.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

As to #1, not so much where I am. We've had a very cool July. I'll take it over scorching heat any day.

Carol Kilgore said...

VR - I'm with you!

Heidi - We've been HOT since May here in San Antonio.

Carol Kilgore said...

Elspeth - I like warm but not hot.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

My top definition - HELL!

lbdiamond said...

Yup! ;)

Laura Eno said...

I can't argue with summer being #1 (as I'm sweltering) but couldn't sexy move to #2? ;)

Talei said...

Oh, 8,5,1! Sizzling, summery fun! Have a fab weekend, sweet! x

Lydia K said...

Yes, totally summer!

Carol Kilgore said...

Alex - Doesn't get much hotter than that.

lbdiamond - :)

Laura - I think you're probably right about that - LOL

Talei - You, too!

Carol Kilgore said...

Lydia - We crossed. Yes, it is definitely summer.

KarenG said...

LOL, specifically THIS summer!

Savannah said...

Carol, your top ten's so cool, it's hot! ;)

Carol Kilgore said...

Karen - It's a scorcher, for sure.

Savannah - Sweet :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Perfect day for this post. I'm wilting in this oppressive heat. Sweltering!

Carol Kilgore said...

Theresa - I know the feeling.

Helen Ginger said...

You clearly live in Texas, although this year you could live just about anywhere. Stay inside with the air conditioner on!

Conda V. Douglas said...

Tomorrow the definition of hot will be: step outside.

Carol Kilgore said...

Helen - No Place But Texas! It's almost 9pm and still mid-90s here.

Conda - See above comment to Helen...LOL.

Clarissa Draper said...

Yes, it sure is hot!

careann said...

Unless it's in a mug topped with steamed milk, I don't care much for hot in the morning. Or any time, for that matter. Here in western Canada summer has just barely arrived. We finally had sunshine today and I think it got up to 26oC (82oF) for the first time this season. I know it's been an inferno in much of the USA so I hesitate to complain. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Clarissa - It's summer!

Careann - I've lived in places where I needed a windbreaker in July. Enjoy what little summer you get.

Arlee Bird said...

I think you've about covered it! I don't envy any of the folks who are having to endure the oppressive heat wave of late, but I'll bet a lot of them would like to be having our Los Angeles weather right now.

Tossing It Out

Carol Kilgore said...

Arlee - I had to look up your weather - LOL. Looks like spring!

Great top 10! I love them all.

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks, Janet!
