Bun in the oven

We're an hour away from the peak heat for the day, which Accuweather.com says will feel like 112 degrees Fahreinheit. (For our Brazilian friends, I did calculate this out to your metric units: It's 317.6 degrees Kelvin. Don't you love standardized systems of measurements?)

All this is just another way of saying, "It's hot."

Now, in American English, there's a euphemism, another saying, for pregnancy: "She's got a bun in her oven." Bread -- pão -- rises with heat and time, of course, just as the mother's belly grows with the growing baby.

With heat like this, my money's on our little bun -- Lil' Genghis -- rising very quickly over the next few days. =)
