Today's social dilemma came from a conversation I had with friends at dinner last night. My buddies are moving to Florida next week. Along with lots of other things, we started talking about the heat this time of year in Florida. We all agreed that with the humidity and high temps we've been having here in the Capital Region, it kind of felt like Florida in July. All that talk led to a discussion of air conditioning. I'll cut to the chase. My friends said that while living here, they didn't have air conditioning and they preferred it that way. Fans did the job and that was enough. They admitted that sometime they were hot, but a little heat won't hurt anyone. I said I grew up with no air conditioning in a house with six other people and it was too much for me. I have vivid recollections of laying in bed sweating trying to fall asleep and not being able to. So I swore that once I was an adult with my own home, I would always have air conditioning. They said they were going to try to live in Florida with just fans, at least for the first month or so to see if they can do it. I said I'm just not comfortable without air conditioning. I have a thing about being comfortable in my own home and if I'm too hot or too cold, I'm not comfortable, that's the reason for heat in the winter and AC in the summer. I would give up cable to pay the extra on my electric bill if I had to so I could have AC. They said I've lost touch with the simple things in life like a fan blowing on you. I said this would be today's social dilemma. So I ask you? Are you more comfortable this time of year with air conditioning, or are you like my friends who are happy with just a fan blowing the air around? I think more people like the AC but I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say about it. Could you live without AC on a 90 degree day? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
