Lately, I have found myself noting a lot of pet peeves. It has become a regular Friday occurence. My question to myself is if these pet peeves are so regularly noted, are they pet peeves? Are my pet peeves becoming a pet peeve? I am not too sure I want to go down a meta-route. But with that being said, I am feeling super full and lazy today. The day after nationally acceptable gluttony. It is what it is, folks.
So, today as I sit here wondering whether I want to exercise twice in order to burn off some extra calories, I am hating the concept of central air. I hate it! Supremely hate it. I know that when we were looking for houses, central air was always listed as a plus. It was considered an upgrade. And the brokers were bewildered by how I would turn up my nose at that.
What I hate most about central air is that there is no sense of indvidual freedom. I get colder than most other people. I also like to wear dresses and short sleeves. I don’t believe in wearting coats indoors. I like to be warm but through warm air and not necessarily through a 100 layers of clothes. Thus, I always suffer when there is central air and heat. Always. I hive and hive some more. What I have found is that there are too many people that like to keep their indoors rooms cold. Why? I have my guesses, but I will not share it here. Well, one obvious reason is the cost of air and heat. I get that. It is proabbly cheaper to stay warm with wearing three seaters indoors than pumping up the heat. But that should not be a reason why I should be cold as well. Why should you tolerance for cold trump my love of warmth?
I am quite individualistic that way and prefer to have things my way. Thus give me individual temperature settings and no centralized (one for all) way of living.
That’s all I have to say about this. Short rant today. Probably because my fingers are frozen. Brr. Humbug.
