I was so hot at my son’s school play last week that I literally thought I was going to melt.
The place was packed full of parents and kids and it was so hot in there that I couldn’t see straight! Usually the school gym where they have all of the school plays and assemblies has really great indoor air quality.
I’ve never really minded having to go to plays or things like that because usually the heating and the cooling is always set just right in there. This time, though, it turned out to be a different story. See, the weather had been cooling off for the entire day and by the time it was time for the play to start, it was downright cold outside. I didn’t really think about the fact that it might have been too hot inside the gym because I was rushing to get inside out of the freezing temperatures outside. However, once I got inside and found my seat for the play, I noticed that the temperature in the gym was way too warm for my liking. Not only that, but I also noticed that the furnace seemed to be running non stop the whole time we were sitting there. I had unfortunately chosen to sit in a spot that happened to be right underneath one of the big heating vents in the ceiling. It got so hot in there before the second act that I actually thought about leaving the play early. I went out into the hallway so I could cool off a little bit and that’s when I saw the janitor messing around with the thermostat unit in the hallway. He looked like he was all stressed out.
