I currently reside in the southeast, and trust me, it gets so darn hot and humid in this area of the country, then there is really no way I would ever live here if a/c were not available to me at the time! Way back in the day, not all the people had a/c in their homes; you can ask several people our age or older, and they will proudly tell you that there was no air conditioner in their houses when they were growing up. Well, I know it, however I am not one of those people. We consistently had a/c, ever since the two of us moved from the northeast all the way to the southeast; I don’t suppose our mother could have survived without it. I do recall, however, my sweet Aunt Bet’s condo only had box fans, but let me assure you, no one wanted to visit my sweet Aunt Bet. It was just so darn hot in there! Anyway, a/c easily saved our life one day, or so I think. There was one time when I was a little kid, I was at John Prince Park and was playing frisbee with both of my siblings, and every time I was able to run fast and jump high and snatch the frisbee out of the air, all the people applauded, so I kept doing it, however I was feeling rather dizzy and clammy. It almost felt like the air had become a natural heater, however anyway. As time passed by, I just collapsed on the ground and was going in and out of consciousness. One of the park employees saw me, grabbed me, and then rode me to their park office, where the air conditioner was blasting the sweet relief of cool air. The a/c helped revive me. If it weren’t for the air conditioner, I would have died from heat stroke.
