Heat, Beating the

A librarian will occasionally find him- or herself feeling a bit salty due to an oppressive heat wave, global warming, or a piss-poor HVAC system. Keep yourself fresh and clean by periodically sponging off in the library's public restroom. Though the water is sometimes colder, one should never conduct one of these "whore's baths" at a public drinking fountain.

I wish we had this problem! It's about 60 degrees in the library all the time - I wear a sweater every day and run the space heater in my office.

I should have known better than to say "whore's bath" in front of you!

hahaha! that was cute. I've never heard of a whore's bath. Is it perhaps the fountain at the park? Now, who would want to sponge away there?
