Sweet, sweet relief

All my life, I have dreamt of owning a landscaping company. I have always taken a liking to plants, and the design aspect of lawn care. That is what I like to specialize in, but I knew it would be no cake walk. Owning your own business is hard, but owning such a labor-intensive company and doing that kind of work all day long is even harder. On your body, I mean. I would come home soaked in sweat from the summer heat. The sun beat down on my body all day long, every day. And while I loved that feeling, all I could think about at the end of the day was coming home, taking a cool shower, and relaxing in front of my air conditioner. What a Godsend it was on the hottest summer days. Working such a demanding job created a whole new appreciation for HVAC systems and HVAC technicians. Without them, I’m sure I wouldn’t last beyond my 50s. I work too hard and too long to wait for my body to return itself to regular temperatures. My air conditioner does that for me, with no additional effort required from me. Where would I be without it? Probably sitting in a bathtub full of ice. And let’s be honest, how much ice can one person get from their freezer? Sometimes I even invite my lesser fortunate employees to come over and enjoy the cool air conditioned air inside my home. Otherwise, they might not come back to work the next day! I can’t have that, now can I?
