Awesome day, today! I have apparently made a lot of you happy with that girly beemer picture…Made me happy too, so, glad to be of help! The week is over, well most of it anyway… Poker tonight didn’t happen, at least I didn’t lose anything…
As the sun was dropping behind the house across the canal, I felt the temperature rising…I’m hot, I thought! Duh, I knew that! But this was different…I lowered the temperature with a few degrees and went on my way. 10 min later, sweat was dripping from my chin on the paperwork I was trying to finish. What?! Leaks? I looked up, nothing. I went to the thermostat again. 80 F… What?! What happened?! It was fine 30 min ago, what changed?! I started all the fans in the house and called “the guy”. He said that it is too late to come now, but surely before noon tomorrow he will be able to fix it. Fix what? How do you know what is wrong? “I am the guy!”….
Oh!…Yeah!… Forgot about that! In his “air conditioning for dummies” explanation, a condenser popped somewhere and it had to be replaced. No freon was moving so I could either leave the AC on fan or on, it would make no difference. If you have ever lived in Texas, you’d know this answer is not true…the humidity alone will kill you before the heat! I love cool spaces, not metaphorically, really, literally cool, fresh air flowing around you… I took a cold shower…joking! the cold water is a little warmer than body temp, so it doesn’t qualify for cooling. If you’re not careful, some days it can burn your skin, too! At least being wet tricks you into thinking you don’t feel the heat, and the fans help; but who can sleep in the shower? I need my cool, literally and figuratively speaking! The heat and the anger will pop something in my brain soon if I don’t “cool it”.
My fans are still on. My sleep is not. I have to cool down. I imagine the mountains…several times and places…nothing. The cool is nowhere to be found…. I feel like a fish out of water…breathe! Breathe! I’ll go pass out on a bed…self preservation – don’t hurt more that you have to! Winter will be fun…I look forward to that!
