Having a family reunion is great, especially with my family. Both of us always have the reunion at my uncle’s house, as he has this big kitchen part plus a gigantic table he found in an estate sale. The table could actually sit twenty people or more, it’s so big! While he doesn’t mind hosting the reunion though, he always catches static from my mom plus dad because of how cold he keeps his house… One year, I asked him why he prefers it to be as cold inside as it is outside, plus he laughed. He explained that trying to heat his home would cost a fortune, plus that it’s infinitely easier (and cheaper) for everyone to just wear another layer of clothes. I thought he was exaggerating about the costs of heating his home, until he showed me what his average utility bill looked like. I couldn’t believe it! He said the size of the rooms in the home made it incredibly hard for any heat to linger. I told him he could just invest in a small part heater, plus he laughed again, saying part furnaces are incredible fire hazards. The following year, my uncle had bought more than one mini-heaters, plus stored them directly behind my mom plus dad’s chairs at the table. The person has a sense of humor, no doubt about it.
