I thought about saying there should be a law about this.
But, I am all about having the freedom to do what you want in your own house and so I can't.
If people want to be stupid, let them be stupid.
Though, if I were to enact such a law it would read:
If someone owns an air conditioner- window, central, whatever- and it is installed, it must be turned on and used when the temperature reaches over 90 degrees and the heat index is over 100 degrees.
No fines. Someone will just come in and turn the damn thing on.
Your punishment is cooler, less humid air and higher electric bills.
So sayeth the Ruth!
Yesterday, I went out to my parents house with my sister and Kiddo.
They will celebrate 48 years of matrimony this coming Thursday.
And we had a gift.
I even baked some bars that would fit into my older sister's diabetic diet. Sort of. Fairly low in carbs and used wheat flour. Golden-cinnamon pumpkin bars fit nicely.
So, we get out there and they have their window ac in and I am thinking-
AWESOME, I am not going to sweat to death.
Except they didn't have it on and the windows were open.
Can we all give a collective WHAT THE FUCK?
Are they waiting for hotter days?
Mom starts messing with the fan and Dad asks her if he should turn on the air and she says no.
The fan's fine.
Dad has emphysema and the air would make it easier to breathe.
They are no spring chickens.
Today there is a heat advisory til 7pm and I bet they don't have it on today either.
Kiddo ended up getting sick from getting overheated.
So, now I get to tell my mother if it is that hot either they turn the air on or we just aren't going to visit.
That's going to go over well.
She has the right to overheat, but that doesn't mean I want my child to.
Dad should have it on anyway.
But, hey, why help the lungs out?
What a fun Sunday!
