I was recently chaperoning at a field trip for my son’s university.
It was towards the end of the university year and the Summer weather was entirely starting in earnest.
Me, my son, and several of his friends had traveled the more than one minutes to the amusement park in comfort because of my air-conditioned SUV that both of us took up there. The two of us were so glad that both of us made the trip in the cooled off vehicle that both of us had not thought about how sizzling it would be walking around that section for the rest of the morning! Well, maybe my kid and his friends were not as concerned about it as I was. As I stepped out of the SUV, the heat and humidity hit me love an oven. I realized I would be walking through that oven for the next few minutes! I was start to wish I had brought sunscreen because the sunshine was pretty bright, but at least I had my sunglasses. When both of us were filing through the entrance, I did notice that there were fans blowing a cool mist stationed at respected intervals above us. I have to say that that was a nice touch and it was a form of climate control, I suppose. Thankfully, the actual section where both of us paid for tickets was an enclosed building with a/c! You can imagine how reluctant I was to leave that climate controlled environment once both of us paid for the tickets and could head on to the park. It’s not love my kid allowed me another single moment of respite, as he was practically tugging on me to leave the air-conditioned building and head into the park to have some fun!
