This is a good break down of "Pure O" - the variation of OCD where there are no compulsions, just intrusive thoughts, usually about the most evil things possible.   

I've had various themes of Pure O since I was 14, but I'm managing it, alone and without drugs.

It's been a mild summer so far (I've noticed, not unusual after a mild winter). We haven't officially even broken 100F, though 99F at least once. It's been a little more humid than usual.

But it's still hot. Today, for example, the heat index was at or above 95F for 9+ straight hours. It was the same yesterday, and on Tuesday it was over 95F for 11+ hours. That is a really long time to be that hot on a daily basis.

For what it's worth, the daily low comes at about 7 AM. Today it was 79, heat index 82. At 8 the heat index was 87, at 9 it was 90, and by 10 it was 95. Where it sat until 9 PM. (Heat index is still above 90 right now, and it's after 11 PM.) There really is no kind of relief from the heat. Ubiquitous A/C makes for temperature shock entering and exiting any building.

Summary: Hearing Bart Allen toss off that he didn’t really have a team was doing things to Bruce’s blood pressure. Maybe it was that it was so casual. Somehow, it felt wrong for a boy that enthusiastic to be that accustomed to being alone.
