My brother was finally going through his basement.
- When he moved out, he took a lot of large boxes with him, and some of those boxes contained my things.
Most of the boxes were a random assortment of items belonging to different family members, so my brother has been slowly returning everything as he sorts through. Well, yesterday he called and told me that one of the boxes he found has almost entirely my things in it. Since it was a fairly large box, he told me I should bring my car and take it with me. I knew I was off today, and so I agreed. It wasn’t until around noon that I actually left to go get my things. I wanted this to be a quick trip, and so I was in a bit of a rush. When I arrived at his place, I was amazed at how heated it felt inside of his home. It felt like he was living in a furnace! When I asked him about his place, he told me he doesn’t have air conditioning anymore. I was shocked, why was he living without cooling? My brother seemed quite proud of himself for living without heating and air conditioning, which only confused me further. I love my climate control, and would never dream of living without it. The lack of A/C gave me even more reason to leave, and so I only stayed at his place for 10 minutes before getting back into my air conditioned car.
