I don’t know what possessed me to take a road trip across the country in the middle of the summertime. I had a fantastic time when I started but the afternoons were unbelievably hot. At the first dive hotel I stopped at, I recognizably asked the front desk clerk to put me in a room with a fantastic Heating and Air Conditioning unit! She said she had the perfect room since the repair person had just ran tests on the Heating and Air Conditioning unit. I was admittedly hot and exhausted from driving 500 miles that afternoon. The first thing I did was wheel my suitcase into the room, adjust the temperature control to the lowest setting and get into the shower. By the time I got all the grime off, the air conditioning system had the room cold. I didn’t know it was unusual. It truthfully felt great. I grabbed my money clip so I could buy some supper from the supper attached to the hotel. After a fantastic meal, I went back to my room and caught my breath as soon as I walked into the room. The air conditioning system was still on and blowing the coldest air I’ve ever felt in my life. I adjusted the temperature control to turn it down a little. When the air conditioning system kicked off, I was a little relieved. After a few times increasing the temperature control, I found the right temperature that would allow me to sleep in a unusual bed comfortably. I have to admit, the frigid air coming from the air conditioner component and the quiet hum was enough to lull me into a blissful sleep. As I woke, I enjoyed the cool air of the air conditioned room a while longer than I normally would before leaving for another leg of my road trip.
