Haze gets to my head

Driving through the smog to the office today made me so angry. It looks like the end of the world to me. The streets are empty. There are no joggers, cyclists and people walking their dogs. Those who are out wear a pained expression on their faces. I don't hear any laughter or the sounds of children playing. The sun is just a weak ball of red. You don't see the any clouds and the sky is perpetually gray. There is no breeze, the heat gets trapped in the still air, smothering us day and night. Even the butterflies and birds are missing.

It's like living in a gas chamber. The eyes smart and the throat is dry. The healthy lifestyle that we've been adopting go up in smoke just like that. It makes the no-smoking zone seem so pointless now.

Ok, I'm done ranting.

The situation seems to be better now. I feel better when I'm indoors when I see how terrible it is when I'm on the road, I get mad all over again!

This does not sound good. It's good to rant and get things off your chest!
