It’s nice and cool this morning. Last night’s storm pushed the hot air away temporarily, plus I have two fans going in my room! I have yet to drag my little window air conditioner out of the attic to install it.
Growing up in St. Louis, air conditioning was everywhere. You’d leave your arctic house and get hot and sweaty. Then you’d crank up the ac in your car to cool down. Then you’d get out of your car and get hot and sweaty. Then you’d go into the grocery store where the ac was set to a temperature that would make penguins happy. I swear, I used to think that I would get internal temperature schizophrenia from the constant hot/cold/hot/cold.
This means that as an adult, I have an aversion to putting in my window unit. I can get through a couple of 90+ degree days but after 2 days, the house has heated up pretty thoroughly and my bedroom can’t cool down enough at night for comfort. But if it’s only a couple of days and then the heat subsides, then I can continue on my merry way, air-condition free. Two summers ago I made it through the whole summer. Last summer, no so luck.
It’s mid-July, so I think if I can get through the next couples of weeks, I might make it. Fingers crossed.
What are you are irrationally averse to?
