I sat in my child’s beach house for three more mornings, with the air conditioning keeping me cool, while I waited till it was time to return home.
It is the rainy season in this section of the country. I thought that if I traveled somewhere for a week, that I’d get away from the excess rain. I headed to the sunny southern regions to visit my two children. When I arrived it was so humid and hot that I didn’t even want to be outside. I was holed up in the beach house and I refused to go in the ocean. If I didn’t have any air conditioning, I would not be going there. The only fantastic thing about being down south, was that I could witness some sunshine. That thought no sooner got out of my brain, than it clouded up and we experienced the loudest thunderstorm I’d ever heard. It lasted a few minutes and then the sun came back out again. Unfortunately, when the sun came back out, the humidity came back even thicker and I could see steam coming up from the ground. I was ready to return home where all I had was the rain, without the horrible heat and humidity. I sat in my child’s beach house for three more mornings, with the air conditioning keeping me cool, while I waited till it was time to return home. I came home to a sunny region and the heat and humidity were just as terrible as when I was in the south. I immediately turned on my air conditioner and vegetated. While I sat in the cool air conditioned house, waiting for my partner to come home, the sun set behind the clouds and there was a thunderstorm. All I could do was laugh.
