A Southern Love Affair

I had forgotten the love affair southerners have with their air conditioning. I did not have air conditioning in my house in Portland and I was not alone. Although I have to admit after last summer’s heat wave I was seriously considering it. Spring in my last city is the time of year everyone opens their windows and doors encouraging the fresh air and scents, pollen and all. After being cooped up all winter we all went outside to dry the mold and mildew off our souls. Here in the south everything remains hermetically sealed. I now have to carry a sweater everywhere I go so I don’t freeze to death when it is over 80 degrees outside. Of course it is over 80 outside while everyone back in Portland is still complaining about cold rainy days.
