A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to a friend;s birthday party.
It was supposed to be a beautiful summer day and he was going to have a BBQ.
He told me he had several racks of ribs along with the normal hot dogs and hamburgers. We were all chipping in with the side dishes. When we got there, he the pool clean and ready for the kids to play in while we sat around with cold drinks and chatted. It turned out to be a really hot day and I noticed another friend was looking like he was about to wilt. I asked if he was okay and he told me he was going to need to get into some air conditioning. He had surgery just a couple weeks earlier and the heat was really taking him out. I walked into the house with him and I couldn’t just let him sit in there alone. I sat down on the chair and we chatted while enjoying the air conditioning. It wasn’t until my wife came looking for me that I realized I had been in the air conditioning for over an hour. I went out to join everyone else. By that time, the food was ready and it was beginning to cool down. MIke had a couple of outdoor portable air conditioners sitting around and we ended up spending the rest of the evening relaxing and just enjoying the cooler air. My friend came out of the house and said that the air conditioning felt good, but he wanted to join the party.
