I am so glad that I brought a couple hoodies and some extra blankets because I am not used to being so cold, especially at night.
I have had the rare privilege of having the same best friend since I was two years old. Molly and I have been friends for over twenty five years now, and we know each other so well. I know her better than I know anyone else. We moved to different states a couple of years ago, and it has been the hardest thing to deal with. We call each other every single day, but it is not the same as hanging out together almost every single day. We have made it our goal to see each other in person at least once a month. We usually take turns driving to each other’s houses. I just got back for the most wonderful visit with her last week. We had such a great time. One thing that I noticed is how cold she keeps her house. It is hot outside right now, but she keeps her house really cool. I felt super cold one night, so I went and checked what the thermostat was set at. It was set at sixty degrees, and it was about fifty-eight in the house at the time. I asked Molly if she meant to have the thermostat set that low, and she said that she always keeps it at fifty-five or sixty. I am so glad that I brought a couple hoodies and some extra blankets because I am not used to being so cold, especially at night. She gave me a heated blanket and some warm socks, so I survived, but I still cannot believe that anyone would like it to be so cold. Molly never used to like that. I guess age has changed her.
