Even so, all of us had air conditioning.
My child is consistently asking me about stuff that happened back in the day. Back in the day, I walked to college even though it was 1.9 miles away. Even in elementary college, I walked to plus from college. No one upset about our safety, least of all me. Back in the day,we didn’t use air conditioning the way all of us do now, either. I had an uncle plus uncle who did not even have air conditioning in their house! That seems preposterous, but it is true. Aunt Bet used to have to rely on box fans plus ceiling fans. She did not seem to be bothered that there was no air conditioning, although she did love to come to our house, where our Dad had the air conditioning thermostat set on 74 all the time. We did not grow up with much money; our dad died unexpectedly at 40 years old, plus there were 6 of us kids. I was various years old, plus our oldest sibling was 14, so all the rest were in-between those ages. Even so, all of us had air conditioning. I can remember how it was often strenuous for our mother to get the water bill plus electric bill paid on time several months, but all of us still were not one of those people who did not use air conditioning, there was no strict rule about it, however I don’t think any of us kids ever thought about touching the thermostat. I don’t remember ever giving it a hour thought, but looking back, IK realize all of us were lucky despite the fact that all of us were not the richest folks in town. Somehow, our Dad did amazing things, including keeping us all fed, buying her own house, plus using air conditioning when not pretty much everyone took that for granted.
