Running temperature and mind!

The other day, I was taking a walk, now I don't know why I was walking in the middle of an afternoon with the sun sparing not even a slightest thought to me...but after walking some I was thirsty, sweaty and tired..You get the picture, right?
So I leaned against a tree trying to compose myself...I did not notice it at first, may be my sweat was winning over rational thinking...But I noticed, rather felt, after sometime that the bark was warm at a particular spot...rest all was cool against my burning skin.
A normal person should think that somebody might have just left this very spot, doing just exactly what I was doing...
But thinking of the thoughts that crossed my mind then, they were really funny...err, quite foolish actually...
My first thought, am I leaning against a ghost leaning against this tree? Couldn't have been more absurd...Wait listen to the second one...is something going on inside the tree at this very spot? N seriously, wait and read on...next I started looking up if there was a gap in those thick leafy braches, that the sun rays were burning up this spot... Well, this could have been a good one unless goddamn it! why wasn’t I feeling those sunburns if I was leaning at that very spot….Okay I won't mention the next one...it's pretty lame...if you have't already labeled me with that, that is...
After a few minutes of total insanity, my sulking consciousness gave me mental kick and I stopped gawking at the tree so suspiciously...I was attracting quite a few curious looks from the audience gathering around...humph...A nosy audience always brings you back to reality, I guess, a staring one especially...
I tried to shoo away my convoluted thoughts and excused myself and practically ran away from the spot...
Later, I was told by an ever-enthusiastic friend of mine that a duffer created a ruckus down the lane. I thought it best not to mention who the duffer was!!!

P.S.: I stopped taking afternoon strolls…They are truly injurious to my mind!!!
P.P.S: How does one wel-come summer? well I just did...

all of this talk of sun and warm bark is making me long for warmer days - the talk of sweat not so much.

LOL! Erratic thoughts indeed!
My sympathies lie with the tree who was subjected to so much suspicion by your "suave" and "intuitive" mind :P
