My mom is always nagging me to dress warmly.
“You know, it’s a myth that you catch colds from being cold, Mom.” Anyway, I was going to a summer party with a bunch of friends and my mom told me to grab a sweatshirt.
I didn’t want to but she insisted. So, I finally threw an old sweatshirt in the car in order to make her happy. Boy am I glad that I did. The house the party was in was freezing cold. I mean they had the air conditioner blasting away all night long. With my cut-off shorts and tank top I was super cold. I finally went outside and got my sweatshirt from my car. I didn’t look as stylish but at least I was a bit warmer. I don’t know how everyone else was able to stand it. People definitely made a lot of comments about how cold it was in the house. The homeowner pretended not to hear them. Either that or he didn’t have access to the thermostat. I am not sure which. I know a lot of people throw parties when their parents are away. I don’t know this guy very well so I don’t know the family dynamics at all. All I do know is that the air conditioner was on way too low and we were all super cold. The party ended up wrapping up a bit early because we were all so uncomfortable. I was happy to get into my heated car and drive home. At least my house has comfortable thermostat settings.
