It’s official…Summer has started for me
I tried to put this off for as long as I could. I thought about all that global warming stuff and about my part in saving the environment, but I couldn’t justify holding out any longer. I thought about the wear and tear on the equipment and how using it would shorten it’s usable life, but not using it makes it worthless, and that’s not why I bought it. I even thought about the electric bill and how it would increase, but since I don’t pay utilities, that clearly wasn’t a deterrent.
“It” is turning on my air conditioner. Saturday, since I spent most of the day in the park, I didn’t realize just how hot my apartment was until late at night. I turned on just the fan portion of the AC and tried to make due with that for a while, but it just didn’t cut it. I finally bit the bullet and turned on the compressor and within a few minutes I was back in a comfort zone.
The problem with turning on my AC, and why I try to put it off as long as possible, is that once it goes on, it’s very difficult to turn it off. Not that the AC is sort of broken and physically won’t turn off, it’s me that’s broken and won’t live in my apartment without turning it on. It even has a handy timer feature that turns it on before I get home so I get to walk into a nice cold apartment.
For me, Summer starts when the AC goes on, and ends when I don’t need the AC anymore.
