California is in an intense heat wave right now, resulting in power blackouts and featuring something called ‘fire tornadoes,’ so this morning when I read that the County was requesting LA residents to turn reduce their AC and electricity use, I of course wanted us to do our part to not overwhelm the system.
Me: They’re asking that we try and use less energy, especially between 3 and 10 today. Use fans instead of AC, shut the blinds to conserve coolness, etc. Let’s do it!
Morrison: But you’re pregnant.
Me: Who ME? I’m fine. I think we should do anything we can to not contribute to the problem.
Morrison: Are you sure?
Me: I can’t hear you over the DIN OF MY OWN SACRIFICES.
Morrison: Okay so for now, I’ll set the AC to like, 78, so that it’s at least blasting less?
Me: That’s perfect.
** TWO MINUTES LATER **
Me: I THINK I’M DYING, WHY DID YOU TURN THE AC OFF
Morrison: It’s not off, I just turned it down?
Me: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT
Morrison: Because you asked me to?
Me: WHY WOULD YOU EVER LISTEN TO ME COULD WE SET IT TO LIKE 5
Morrison: Where are you going?
Me: TO SEE IF MY WHOLE BODY FITS IN THE GARAGE REFRIGERATOR
