Last weekend, I went to go visit my parents. It had been a while since I’d seen them. They live about 2 hours away from me (in good traffic),so visiting them cannot really be a regular occurrence, because of my gas budget. Speaking of my budget, although I genuinely wanted to visit with my parents that weekend, I must admit that I had an ulterior motive to getting out of my apartment to see them. The air conditioning in my place was on the fritz, and it would be a week before I had the funds in place to fix it. I had to suffer through all of that last work week, not being able to get near as much sleep because of how hot and sweaty it was at night. By Friday, I was exhausted and desperate to get relief. I called ahead to let my parents know I was coming, and they were happy to have me. I just hoped that I would not fall asleep at the wheel trying to get to their place. When I finally arrived, I had the strength to greet them and have a bit of a conversation on how things were going, but before long, I went to my old room and passed out on my bed in the air conditioning for a delightful nap. I ended up sleeping for 4 hours straight and woke up around dinnertime. My parents were very concerned, and thought that I was overworking myself. At that point I had to come clean about my air conditioning problems in my apartment. Not only did they not feel that I was taking advantage of their air conditioning system, but they gave me a little money towards getting it fixed. My parents truly are awesome!
