My old friends are just great! I have known them all since college, and we have stayed in touch since graduation; My favorite activity that we all do together is take our annual Winter trip… This usually entails 3-4 days in New York City. While there, we go ice skating, shop, and see movies. I enjoy being there with them, but I just can’t take the cold!
Last year, when we made it back to our hotel after a long day, we found that the heating system in our hotel wasn’t working. I tried to move the thermostat around for a few minutes to see if that would help, but nothing would trigger it! I called the front desk to see if they could send up a repair professional, but she was on her break! After she told us that it would take a few minutes for our heating system to be repaired, I marched down to a local store and purchased a space heater. No way was I going to sit in a cold room shivering for a few minutes. My friends and I all gathered around the space heating system while we waited for the repair professional to arrive.
Finally, she did and she was able to get the heating system working again in just a few minutes. I was glad, but we were all put off by the entire ordeal. Maybe this year we’ll take a trip to somewhere warmer! I could imagine myself resting on the beach and relaxing instead of travelling through the snow and ice.
