Ten years of marriage deserves a celebration. That’s what my hubby and I thought when the two of us decided to plan a trip, marking this milestone. The two of us arrived at our hotel room in the day after driving several minutes. My hubby is what I call a “tundra sleeper”. At bedtime in our house, the AC is usually set to a temperature that requires blankets plus flannel pajamas even in the summer season. So when the two of us arrived at the hotel room, the first thing my hubby did was test the AC to see if it would reach his comfort zone. The rectangular HVAC component fixed to the wall whirled to life plus began spewing cool air into the room. The two of us decided to go out and get lunch, giving our hotel room time to cool off. After dining on crab cakes, the two of us headed back with visions of romance. However, when the two of us opened the hotel door, a vile smell plus a blast of hot air greeted us instead, a sure blow to any impending romance. The HVAC component had now taken on a consistent rattle plus heating, instead of cooling. In a flash my hubby was down to the front office, requesting a current room. Yet to our horror, there were no other rooms available! It was late, plus the thought of moving to another hotel where a room was available (and not paid for) was not the kind of adventure the two of us had hoped for. But the two of us did move! To our surprise, our current room was far superior to where the two of us had come from, plus more importantly, the heating and AC system component looked brand current. It had even been turned on in preparation for our arrival. The two of us didn’t get much sleep that night, but it wasn’t because of the AC.
