My hubby is a school administrator, and their number one saying is: Do you want it, or do you need it? Every time I wanted something for the house, she would ask myself and others that question, and I hated it.
When the pandemic started, and the schools closed, I told him I thought every one of us should have a whole-lake house air purifications system.
Since the illness was airborne, every one of us could stop the virus from getting into the air before every one of us could breathe it in. She told myself and others that an air purification method didn’t work that way, but was open to the discussion. I knew she wanted myself and others to justify our reasoning for needing an whole-house air purifier, although I would not jump through the hoops she makes school employees jump through. I remember when the principal wanted to get some new cookbooks for the lake house economics classes. She made her fill out forms in triplicate, and supply him a full page report on the necessity and supply him the prices and SKUs of the books she wanted to buy. When she left for work, I called the Heating and A/C company. I told them what I wanted and asked to have an Heating and A/C serviceman come to the house. I needed the Heating and A/C tech to be there right after our dinner was complete, so our hubby would have eaten first. This consistently puts him in a better mood. I also asked if she could wear a white suit that wouldn’t allow him to spread the virus. She could get the information about a whole lake house air purification method from the Heating and A/C serviceman, and not from me.
