I love seeing how excited the weather reporters on TV get about any kind of weather extreme. The excessive heat some parts of the U.S. have had this summer has them almost giddy. They have so much to work with these days that they not only tell us what the temperature is, they go even further and tell us what that temperature "feels like". I know it is some kind of calculation of wind and humidity and so forth, but just tell me what the temperature is and I can walk outside to see what it "feels like".
I can't get too excited about a "feels like" temperature, but it does make me think that there are some other things for which it would be great to have a "feels like" measurement.
I lost 5 lbs, but it "feels like" 15.
I have a $10 bill in my pocket, but it "feels like" a $20.
I just turned 64, but it "feels like" 40.
I'm eating a rice cake, but it "feels like" a scoop of chocolate ice cream.
At the least I'd like to hear the weather reporter, someday, say that it is 90 degrees out, but it feels like 72.
What kind of "feels like" would be good for you?
