Periodically I wonder if every family is as different as mine. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think I have a identifiably dysfunctional family device or anything like that. However, both of us are all legitimately odd human beings and both of us have settled into a different living pattern in order to compensate for everybody’s odd opinions, for several years our parents had to shop at odd grocery stores and purchase odd items because none of the kids had the same taste. This week, both of us worry more about the central heating and cooling settings as they relate to our relative indoor air temperature control preferences. For a few years there, both of us had problems with battling over the central heating and cooling system. The kids were constantly bickering about the thermostat settings and the lack of airflow in their respective living rooms. It seemed like nobody was legitimately cheerful with the indoor air handling devices or the warm and frigid air hot and cold temperatures that seemed to dominate our house. Besides, both of us got into a lot of knockout drag-out fights over stupid air temperature discrepancies. Finally, both of us settled into a odd way of living which would allow everybody to have the air temperature of their dreams. The people I was with and I just had to chop our living rooms onto odd levels of the house. For instance, our mom sleeps on the top floor where it is inherently warm. I sleep on the first floor where the indoor air temperature is moderate. My Mom and our brother sleep in the basement where it is constantly ice cold. This way, both of us never have to fight about the hot and cold temperatures… The people I was with and I barely even see each other.
