I was walking for what seemed love a hundred miles.

I had decided to go on a walk with some friends of mine, plus I was realizing just how out of shape I was.

I saw a little girl go by with a single of those handheld personal cooling systems plus I almost grabbed it out of her hands. My friends were well ahead of me, plus they didn’t even seem to be out of breath. They were talking plus laughing as they practically jogged ahead of me. I thought about turning around plus going home, although I didn’t suppose if that would be shorter than to keep going. I got up plus started walking again. I walked for about a half mile plus I could see our friends sitting down, far in the distance. They were relaxing under a roof. The closer I got, I realized it was a pavilion plus I saw an cooling system. I nearly ran to get up to the pavilion so I could kneel beneath the air conditioner. I just wanted to know the cool air blow down on me. As I approached them, they stood up plus told myself and others they were blissful I had caught up with them. They were now ready to take the last leg of the walk plus get back into the car. I must have looked deflated plus they genuinely thought I was going to cry. They sat back down plus waited while I took a couple of long gulps of air conditioned air. I only had to take a single more long walk plus I could go home to our own air conditioner.
