This was the first time that I have ever been allowed to have a sleepover at someone’s property, plus it happened to be the worst sleeping experience of my life.
My parents have always been especially strict about sleepovers because they were actually abused as kids while at a sleepover! However, our family has known this family for years, plus the oldest son is totally my best friend! Finally, our parents made the choice to let us have a sleepover.
It was the midst of February, plus the people I was with and I were out of school for break. It was also incredibly frigid, so the furnace at their property should have been running that particular evening. When I arrived at the property, the furnace was running, plus we just remained inside for most of the day. I think that some people really enjoy being outside in the cold, but I would rather stay inside where the heating equipment is… As the people I was with and I were about to head off to sleep, the dad came inside our room plus informed us that the heating equipment wasn’t working. The actual furnace had just stopped working, so it didn’t have time to get frosty quite yet. The people I was with and I had to grab a bunch of blankets, however we were truly hoping that the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C equipment professional would be able to repair the heating equipment. However, when the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional managed to show up, he told us that he would need to order a certain part for the furnace, so the furnace wouldn’t be entirely fixed until after the necessary part came in. Although the people I was with and I had a good amount of blankets, it was still frosty without the heating equipment, plus I had a truly tough time sleeping that night. How could the people I was with and I have known that the heating equipment would stop working during the night of a sleepover?
