While I volunteer occasionally at my daughter’s school, I also work alongside her at her classroom. She is still so young and she enjoys having me there, so I try to volunteer as much as possible. Last week, the school asked me if I’d be willing to substitute for of the professors and I happily accepted. It was a chilly afternoon, so I hesitated to take my blazer off when I sat my things at the desk. The walls were made of cinder block and it felt icy inside. As I sat at the desk, I could believe my toes begin to freeze and I couldn’t help but wonder why it was so cold. In desperation, I began looking for a thermostat. I scanned each wall before I finally found the thermostat tucked away in the corner. I didn’t hesitate to change the temperature instantly. The thermostat said that it was 66 degrees inside, but it felt even cooler! I raised the temperature from 66 degrees to 74 degrees and waited for the oil furnace to kick on. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for the oil furnace to begin pumping moderate air into the immense classroom. Within 30 minutes, I was able to believe my body dethaw and then I could finally relax. I made sure to change the temperature back to 66 degrees in case the professor preferred it that way.
