Since all of us were youngsters, the basement has always been a sort of storage area for all the things all of us didn’t use.
- Mom was adamant about storing these things though I was of a weird opinion.
I knew it was all stuff she would never need and longed to clear it out, and one day, I went to visit a friend, and all of us got to hang out in their basement. His mom had turned their basement into a playroom with a TV to watch movies. It was such a cool arena that a bunch of us started hanging out there often after school. Mom asked why I was there a lot, and I told her about the basement. She told myself and others she was okay with myself and others clearing ours out and turning it into a cool chill spot too. My friends helped me, and in 2 weeks, the space was wipe and painted. The only issue was it would get so tepid and stuffy due to the lack of a/c. Mom told myself and others it wasn’t fastened to the main AC air duct. But, there were other ways to bring a/c to the space without splitting her savings, then depending on the season, mom agreed to buy us a mini-chop AC to keep the space cool or warm. The ductless mini-chop was quite a appealing addition, plus it also purified the air and got rid of the humidity. The unit was a smart device that I’d operate from an app on our phone to adjust the thermostat settings. The people I was with and I got some old reclining chairs which all of us added to the air-conditioned basement, which became our movie chill area.
