My sibling were always the popular kids at school, but not me. I am a textbook introvert and tend to love staying to myself. Well, until recently, that is. Lately, I have about five or so neighborhood youngsters as my constant friends that won’t leave my side, whether I enjoy it or not. Everything started when the area started a rough streak of over 90 degree weather for the past several months. As summer season moved into our region very fast, the pounding summer season sun and ridiculous relative humidity grew to a staggeringly boiling and muggy succession of nights. Apparently several of our residents in the section were poorly prepared for this heatwave. It became common knowledge among all the home stores that there was a dangerous cooling system shortage in our regions. I knew several families that were now evacuating to established safe havens quickly. My house, meanwhile, was perfectly cool and comfortable despite the overwhelming outdoor heat, though I still worried. I had recently had our whole central cooling system installed with the most powerful and energy efficient model on the market. Really, it was finally working quite well to manage our air quality. One afternoon I was stunned to go outside and see a pile of children laying around our pool, drenched in stinky sweat. I was startled and disgruntled at first glance, however the kiddos looked so upset that I invited them all inside to cool down. After a moment of experiencing our attractive replaced AC, they looked very appreciative as modern children. It’s been a month or so now, and the weather hasn’t let up an ounce in temperature. At this point our home has become a literal teenager clubhouse I never imagined. I’m ecstatic to be a central part of the neighborhood, so this is getting a little ridiculous.
