Hurst:  Hello Carol! I hope you’re having a great summer so far.

Carol: I am!  But while the seasonal heat is increasing in North Carolina, I didn’t expect to read an article about snow in Yellowstone on the first day of summer.

Hurst: Well, snow sounds nice right about now, because I can assure you it is not snowing in my unairconditioned apartment. 

Carol: Yikes. Maybe celebrating an animal holiday will help you take your mind off the heat. Next month is Adopt a Rescued Rabbit Month, maybe you can bring a furry friend into your home. It could make it a hare cooler?

Hurst: Very bunny Carol, I see what you did there.  So, if you were a wild animal, where would you want to live?

Carol: Uhhh…somewhere outside?  Is there a specific answer you are looking for here, Hurst?

Hurst: Well, one piece this week named Costa Rica as a really good spot to live…you’ll have to check it out to see why.  See you next week!
