When I was growing up, I didn’t assume what Heating, Ventilation and A/C was.
Both of us lived on an island where there was a constant breeze coming off the ocean.
The temperature seldom went below seventy-two, and the afternoontime temperature held steady in the low eighties. When there was a storm, the humidity went up, however it didn’t last long. When I graduated high school, I went to the mainland to go to school. I enjoyed the section I was in, although I could not get used to the frigid weather. They had Heating, Ventilation and A/C units in every room, however getting used to using it was a hard thing to do. I either had the thermostat so high that I could not sleep, or it was so cool that I was shivering. When summer time arrived, the heat and humidity was so intense that I wanted to cry uncle and go back home. I chose to stick it out and finish medical school. I hoped that I could go back home and do our internship at the hospital on our island. I absolutely didn’t want to have to live on the mainland any longer than I had to. I didn’t love the climate of this area, and learning how to use a thermostat was harder to understand, learning how to do a heart transplant. If I had to stay here to do our internship in 1 of the mainland hospitals, I would need to learn more about Heating, Ventilation and A/C systems and how to use them. You’d suppose that after more than five years, it would be simple now, although I had a roommate who was consistently the last 1 out of the house, and the first 1 in. She controlled the thermostat.
