One of the park employees noticed me, grabbed myself and others up, and drove me to their park office, where the a/c was blasting the sweet relief of cool air
I currently live in the southeast, and trust me, it gets so darn warm and miserable in this part of the country! There is undoubtedly no way I would ever live here if a/c were not available to me, however way back in the day, not all the people had a/c in their houses; you can ask several people our age or older, and they will proudly tell you that there was no a/c in their houses when they were growing up. Well, I know it, despite the fact that I am not 1 of those people, however all of us consistently had a/c, ever since we packed up and moved from the northeast to the southeast; I don’t recognize our mother could have survived without it. I do remember, however, my Aunt Bee’s house only had box fans, and let myself and others assure you, not a soul wanted to visit my poor Aunt Bet. It was just so darn warm in there! Anyway, a/c honestly saved our life 1 day, or so I think. I have one memory when I was a kid, I was at John Prince Park and was playing frisbee with my youngest siblings, then 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, even though I was feeling rather dizzy and clammy. It almost felt appreciate the air had become a form of heating. Anyway, eventually, I just collapsed on the ground and was going in and out of consciousness. One of the park employees noticed me, grabbed myself and others up, and drove me to their park office, where the a/c was blasting the sweet relief of cool air. The a/c helped revive me. If it weren’t for the a/c, I honestly would have died from heat stroke.
