My ten-year-old child recently had a field trip to an amusement park towards the end of the Spring semester.
- It was right after some hard testing, so all of the students were apparently very ready for a break! He wanted me to be a chaperone on this trip, which suited me just wonderful as I would appreciate to be able to keep an eye on him, and the thing is, he also wanted three of his friends to carpool with us.
I wasn’t too keen on having three other kids bouncing around our backseat, but then our child explained why he and his friends would really appreciate that I drive them to the park, however all the kids that were not carpooling would have to ride the cheese wagon to the amusement park. Those outdated green buses had no form of weather conditions control and Summer weather was on its way. I, on the other hand, had an SUV with plenty of room and excellent air conditioner! No wonder our child and his friends wanted to ride with me. Once I understood that it was air conditioner that they were after, I was all too cheerful to accommodate them. I can understand, after all. I used to have to ride those same green buses with no air conditioner too! My child and his three friends really loved the ride to the amusement park, then despite the fact that it was numerous hours long, they were quite too cool and comfortable because of the air conditioner. Meanwhile, when we finally got to the park, we could see that the kids getting off of the green bus were quite hot and hot in comparison!
