Friday From the Frying Pan into the Fire

21 Jun

“Escaping goblins to be caught by wolves!” he said, and it became a proverb, though we now say ‘out of the frying-pan into the fire’ in the same sort of uncomfortable situations.”
-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Jumping from the frying pan into the fire is an idiom with the general meaning of escaping a bad situation for a worse situation. It was made the subject of a 15th-century fable that eventually entered the Aesopic canon.
It’s a hot one out there with no end in sight. Remember in January and February when we were complaining about the frigid cold? Well, I knew I’d soon be complaining about the sweltering heat. Here we are!

My car temperature fluctuated from 99 to 100 on my way home from Towne Creek this evenings, and it’s pretty accurate.

Not sure which extreme temperature I can complain about the most, BUT, I have a feeling now I think we are out of the frying pan and headin’ smack dab into the fire.

Here we go!!!
