I am not the type of man to live in the past, however when Max called myself and others and asked if I wanted to take a Spring Break vacation like the old afternoons, I said sure.
Max and I were best friends all throughout university, and then after we graduated we went our separate ways.
My times on vacation with Max are some of the fondest memories of my entire life, so of course I was stoked to go back one last time. Max rented a small apartment near the beach, which looked great on the website. Once we got there we found the venue sizzling and humid, and absolutely lacking a central The people I was with and I opened the windows for natural ventilation, however as nice as the sea breezes were, it did not do enough to cut the heat and humidity. I offered to drive to a hardware store and find a small, portable unit to use for the weekend. Max thought that would be too much currency, so instead I recommended building a “swamp cooler” to help with cooling down the cabin. Max didn’t like that idea, either. What he did like, was the window-mounted a/c he saw in a neighboring cabin. That venue was laying empty for the weekend, so Max thought we should go borrow that a/c for a couple of afternoons. That proved easier said than done, because even with a full tool kit we could not manage to remove that unit from the window sill. The owners had obviously prepared for this!
