My Air Conditioner Condition: Day 3

I have learned that I no longer fond of my children to sitting on my lap without an air conditioner. They walk up and sit down and immediately any place where there is contact starts get wet. I am hoping it is sweat as apposed to the alternative… wetting of pants. If the air conditioner does not get fixed soon I may end up paying quite a bit for therapy when the boys get older. I can hear it now, “Daddy never held me when I was little. He said I was too sweaty.”

My future children.

In the middle of the night I feel my wife’s leg move over and touch mine and I move away. Then she moves it again to touch mine… and the cycle continues until I am at the edge of the bed and the choice is that I let her heat producing leg touch mine or I lay on the floor with the dog. It wouldn’t be so dreadful but that woman is like a Bunsen burner when she sleeps. The dog was trouble the first night, but he was much better last night.

I don't know why this line never worked for me in college.

Sweat is coming from places I didn’t know could sweat. It is a very uncomfortable situation I must say. There is nothing like getting up for a drink and having your thighs make a squish-squish noise.

I have taken to just wearing shorts around the house as it is much too blistering for a shirt. The only difficulty comes when I sit on the couch all the dog’s hair sticks to my sweaty back and legs. I really need to train the dog not to sleep on the couch when we are gone.

Here is the neighbor boy after he saw me when I got off the couch.

When I walked out to get the mail the neighborhood children ran off crying. According to the police report there was mention of a half shaved Yeti.


  1. I feel your pain. My window AC unit doesn't work great, but I'm thinking it's time to plug it in and watch my electric bill skyrocket for the next couple of months.

  2. OMG, I don't know if I'm gonna laugh or what on the my children to sitting on my lap and my wife's leg parts. LOL! Have you fixed your AC? It's almost impossible to survive without an AC in the house during summer. It's like even every little movement you do, you'll sweat!

  3. I'm sure that even your dog was unhappy about your broken AC. Of course, he also felt uncomfortable. You guys used to sleep with the air conditioner on, so I can really feel how inconvenient those moments were for you. I've read your other posts related to this, and it's a good thing that you bought a new AC. I hope that you won't go through such trouble again in the future.

  4. What a funny story! That line never worked for me either. You must be sweating buckets when you wrote this. Make a note to yourself to buy an electric fan in case your AC breaks down again in the future. Eric Powell @ Gray's Total Energy Green Solutions, LLC
