My roommate got an air purifier when all the while she thought the surprise was an engagement ring

Two years out of college and our first jobs which did not pay nearly enough was the life my best friend/roommate and I were living.

Dolly as all her friends called, was so full of life and a bit eccentric but she was the best roommate any person would ask for. She even got us a free HVAC zone control tune-up for free because the guy she was dating was an HVAC tech. We even had a new air purifier thanks to him, but Dolly detested that air purification system. The reason was that he had made a big gesture of it with flowers and a candlelit dinner. She thought that he was going to propose to her, but he gave her that instead. He even gave her tips on how to take care of air quality systems. The poor HVAC professional was so concerned about her indoor air quality because she is asthmatic and did not notice how disappointed Dolly was. As far as surprises went this was a first. I had to admit we never thought of such a thing because I thought the HVAC installation took care of filtering the air and temperature control. He even advised us to contact an HVAC provider to get an air duct cleaning because an HVAC duct trapped a lot of dust over the years. Duct cleaning is amongst the many services offered by homeowner solutions as part of AC care. Looking back, the guy had put so much thought behind that gift and after Dolly got over her disappointment she came to love and appreciate the gift.
