Cool It

The power blinked off a few times today, most likely an electrical overload kind of thing from all those air conditioning units chugging away.

We didn't have air conditioning when I was a kid. Central air was a luxury so if there was any kind of cool air it came from a window unit or a fan. The fans worked out okay, but they were nowhere as nice as the cold air that blew out of those sleek little boxes of chilled airflow.

My parents had a unit in their bedroom. Us kids went to bed with cool washcloths and window fans.

...A fine example of a class society...
