I’m not a fan of heat. Never have been. When I was in my 20s, I’d come home from being out and about in the high-90s or low-100s heat in my hometown of Northern Cali, and would collapse on the lowest level of my family’s split-level house, right in front of the air duct register, where the cool air from the A/C would hit me in the face until I fell asleep.
I went from air conditioned car to air conditioned work place to air conditioned home and back again, or if I worked outdoors, I just…suffered. This never changed for me.
Back in 2004, in a desperate financial situation, my wife and I bought a car. We didn’t have one at the time, so we weren’t fussy about it. Unfortunately, for reasons I won’t get into here, we didn’t take the time to check the car out very well. The AC was broken. And, VERY expensive to fix. So.
Today, our business group is having a company picnic thingy. Not a formal “company picnic,” in that only our group is attending, but one the company is funding (for the most part). So today, I have to go out in almost 90° weather. I’ll be outside, in this heat, for almost two hours, for the first time in many, many years.
Yes, I AM afraid, thanks for asking.
I’ll be dead by the time I get home, because the car still doesn’t have A/C…
…pray for me.
And have a good weekend!
