I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

I don't get it.

In Maryland, I remember there were people who didn't use their a/c. I thought they were strange.

My first year in law school, right after I bought my place, a strong storm wiped out my a/c compressor, and I was without a/c for two weeks. DURING FINALS MY SECOND SEMESTER, in steamy, steamy May, the beginning of the rainy season.

It was hell.

It motivated me to go to the library and stay there, yes, but it was hot as hell.

And I was MISERABLE. Do you know what it's like to live in a steamy, non-cross ventillated oven for some of the most stressful weeks of the year? I do.

And I think anyone who elects that is just nuts.

Like these freaks.

I literally almost cried with joy and relief after I got my new compressor and flipped on the a/c and heard the familiar gurgling of compressed freon.

I guess in Baltimore the heat is only terrible during the day, and at night it does cool off. Not in Miami, though. The heat and humidity do not abate.

The moral of the story? I'm in love with my A/C.
