Last night the AC saved my life

My air conditioning unit at home is like fine china, only used on special occasions. On warmer nights I’ve always been able to resist the temptation to turn it on because of the resulting increase in my electricity bill. Last night my survival instinct didn’t allow me to be so frugal. My options were to either drown in my own sweat or set aside some extra money for the energy bill. Needless to say I fell asleep wrapped in my sheets while listening to the soothing humming of the AC unit outside my bedroom window. I fear I may have already developed a dependency. I probably say this every year, but this has got to be the hottest summer that I’ve ever experienced. Cold water has never tasted so good. If Jamaicans are complaining about the heat and humidity then someone should warn tourists about the searing temperature this summer. Visitors to Jamaica, If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. Be particularly alert for thieves but do not offer resistance in the event of an attempted robbery. But trust me on the sunscreen.

Gussie, it is pretty cool in the hills of Manchester.Maybe you need to consider relocating. Nuff respect,Star. KINGSTON HOT!!

LL said...

Honestly Gussie, I was just there for a week and returned home with a mild sunburn. Although a native of Kingston, upon each trip I wonder how on earth I survived the heat while I was living there. I look forward to coming home next year to see family and friends but I am not excited about the heat. Please stay cool my friend. Perhaps we have to come up with some way to stay cool without burning a hole in our pockets...

Oh - and great tip about the sunscreen. I brought for my son, but neglected my own delicate skin. Lesson learned. Sunscreen will be a mandatory travel item along with mosquito repellant and calamite lotion :-)

@Esteban:
I envy you because I know just how cool it is in your neck of the woods. I’ve even seen houses in Manchester with chimneys. True story!

@LL:
I’m so sorry that my sunscreen travel advisory went out late and I apologize for any inconvenience caused =)

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole
my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share
it with someone!
