We had to go to a big outdoor graduation party last week and the weather was so hot that I was miserable.
I had not originally planned on going, but it was my niece’s birthday party and my sister got really mad at me when I told her that I was not planning on coming.
I told her that I couldn’t stand the thoughts of going outside in the really high temperatures without air conditioning for any length of time. She said she couldn’t believe that I would consider skipping my niece’s party just because I’m a baby about needing air conditioning all the time. We kind of got into a fight about it and finally I told her that I would go but I wasn’t staying long. When I arrived, the temperature outside was almost ninety degrees and there was no sign of it cooling off at all. I stayed in my car with the A/C blasting through the air vents until the last possible minute. When I got out and walked over to the party, I was sweating through my shirt within minutes and just like I suspected I would be, I was miserable. I needed to get out of there fast, but I saw my sister watching me with her eyes narrowed. I stuck around so I could help sing the birthday song and I even watched her cut the cake and then I got out of there. I was so happy to be back in my car with the A/C going full blast! And honestly, I feel like I made an effort and my sister should not be mad at me.
