I thought that I was the only one who sat at the computer and just stared at an empty screen. I had a really important paper to finish for school, but I didn’t have any words to write. My mind was full of getting out and enjoying the sunshine. Yet, I was stuck in the house until I finished this paper. I tried to tell her that it was too warm in the house to concentrate, and that didn’t work. She turned on the air conditioning and pointed the air vents directly towards me. I sat there looking at my computer for a bit more time, and I got up and looked out the window. I was watching the kids playing in the yard. They were so much fun playing kicking ball and all I wanted to do was to go out with them. I started to get up again and I told her it was still too cool with the air conditioning. She turned off the AC and put a fan in the window. She totally obliterated my view of the kids. Then she pulled the top of the curtains shut so I couldn’t even see the sunshine. I gave up and sat back down at the computer. I really did need to get this paper done so I could duplicate for my students. My wife was not going to let me get away with not finishing the paper. I yelled I needed a sandwich, got up and took the fan out of the window, and turned the AC back on. It really was quite warm in room.
