It was a hot day and the sun was beating down mercilessly. Mandy had been out in the yard for hours, working on her tan. She was tempted to go inside and cool off with a cold drink, but she didn’t want to break her streak. Finally, she decided to go for a swim.
She dove into the pool and came up a few seconds later, gasping for air. The water was so cold it took her breath away. She swam a few laps to warm up, then got out and lay in the sun for a while longer.
When she went inside, she made herself a tall glass of iced tea. She gulped it down, feeling the cool liquid refresh her. It was just what she needed on a day like this.
