I turned on my air conditioner today. That feels momentous. March 6th—Day One of Air Conditioning.
More momentous is that I turned it on shortly after 7 AM. Waking up today everything felt slightly damp and sticky: bath towels, kitchen towels, even supposedly clean clothes straight from the closet. Bathroom floor is still wet from my shower the night before. Even the dust bunnies are damp, as evidenced by the way they clump together and then stick to the broom. And this isn’t just today. It’s been like this for awhile.
I taught my 8:00 to 9:35 AM class, walked back, and took a cold shower. I see many more in my future.
