Last weekend I had a killer party, and now I am paying the price for it.
I know that it is always a small risk to have a big party.
When you have a small gathering of friends and family, these worries don’t exist. But when strangers wander through my home, I always do things like lock up my jewelry and hide the pills in my medicine cabinet… just in case. I did all of this for the last party, but I underestimated how shady people can be. I must say I am genuinely stunned that someone had the nerve to steal my air conditioner. My back bedroom was an add-on to the house, when I walled up a patio, so it is not connected to the main HVAC system or any of the air ducts. I bought a window mounted A/C unit for that room, which was the same room I used to store people’s coats and purses for the party. No one reported any purses being stolen, but for some reason a no-good thief stole the air conditioner right out of my window. I am not that upset about losing the A/C unit itself, because it only costs a couple hundred bucks to replace, and I rarely use the room anyway. It is the fact that someone came into my house, enjoyed my hospitality, and then had the nerve to steal the air conditioner. I can only imagine that they were in such desperate need of cooling at home that they needed it more than I did.
