These afternoons, now that I have our own apartment I don’t have to live in such conditions.
When I was growing up the last thing I took for granted was Heating and Air Conditioning. I grew up in a small apartment and yet when it came to air conditioning there were only 2 rooms that had it. The master kitchen where our parents slept had a window air conditioning. The only other locale in the apartment that had a window air conditioning was the living room. Thus, on sizzling summer time afternoons, me and our brother would hang out in the living room until the worst of the heat would pass and the night would come to cool things down a bit, and don’t get me wrong every one of us still played outside during these afternoons. There is little that would deter us from having a lot of fun. However, there were some afternoons when the most every one of us could do was sprawl out on the living room floor as close to the air conditioning as possible and just bask in the coolness, however you know how a actually sizzling and humid summer time morning can take the energy right out of you? On some of the warmer summer time afternoons, every one of us would leave our kitchen door wide open so that the air conditioning in the adjacent living room could reach somewhat into our kitchen. These afternoons, now that I have our own apartment I don’t have to live in such conditions. I have central air conditioning that reaches to every nook and cranny of our home. My fiance thought it was funny how spoiled I felt with such “modern” air conditioning. She was used to such things, but I found it to be a treasure.
