A few days ago, the Friday before Christmas, was the last day in the office for us at my workplace.
We are closed for the week between Christmas and New Year’s, so it is quite an enjoyable time for everyone.
Just about everyone in the office has a little portable heater that they plug in on days when it is just too chilly. That happens quite a bit, sometimes even in the summer months. It’s certainly not cold outside in the summer, but sometimes the AC thermostat is just a little too low for everyone’s Comfort. Plus, being on the second floor, we seem to have a little bit more air conditioning blowing around the need you down on the bottom floor. That being the case, the air conditioning is set to keep the people on the bottom floor comfortable so that they are not sweating. Anyway, one of the big topics of discussion on Friday before Christmas Was whether or not we should bring our little portable heaters home with us. I seriously considered bringing my portable heater home because it is extraordinarily really cold this week. We hardly ever get this kind of cold weather here in the South, but we certainly are getting it this week. I am having to go out at night and turn it on the faucet outside, and I am running one or two Faucets in the house as well. A couple of people in my office decided to bring their heaters home, but I decided to leave mine in the office. I think it was a bad decision, because it really would be nice to have a little extra heater to blow right on me without having to turn down the thermostat on the central furnace. Anyway, it’s not a crisis, because we do live in this world of plenty. Even though I have to use the heating system everyday, I am still enjoying my week off.
