People look at me unusual when they ask me what I got for my birthday and I tell them I got an air conditioner.
- Well it is the truth.
I got an air conditioner for my birthday and I could not be happier. Yes our home has central air conditioner and heating. However, I am always hot. It seems the older I get the more strenuous it is for me to cool down. It is worse at night. My fiance and I are always fighting over the control unit. She can’t sleep because he is too cold and I can’t sleep because I am too hot. I should mention that my pal and I sleep in separate study rooms. After 30 years of marriage it just works out better this way. My fiance claims it is because of my snoring. Whatever the case, it made it possible for me to get, and install, a window air conditioner component in my study room, and like I said, best birthday present ever. For the first night in a long time I slept for a solid 8 hours! Just before going to bed I turned the control component on the window air conditioner component down to 60 degrees. Then I took a shower, crawled into bed, and fell asleep before my head hit the pillow. I was so cool and comfortable. As an added bonus, the fiance and I didn’t have to fight over the central control component setting just before bed either. I hope he got a relaxing night’s sleep as well. Maybe now my pal and I can stay married another 30 years. Now that my pal and I have one less thing to fight about.
