Last week, my husband and I went to a dinner party at our friends’ house.
We were going to have pasta, wine, and tiramisu for dinner and then play games so we were pretty excited. These days you have to take your excitement wherever you can get it! We were happy to be spending time with our friends and eating some good food that we didn’t have to cook ourselves. Well, the whole night was really great except for the fact that the house was so hot on the inside. We didn’t want to say anything about the temperature inside the house because we thought that would be rude. But the heating system did not go off for the entire time that we were there! I was sweating by the time we got done with our salads, and before dessert came out, I felt like I was going to pass out from the heat. They had to have had the thermostat settings at over seventy five degrees or so, and it’s not even really cooling off outside that much yet. There was absolutely no reason for the furnace to be running, but you can’t really tell someone how to set their thermostats. I guess it couldn’t be perfect, but the way that it was so hot in there really put a damper on the party. I think that if the heating hadn’t been running the whole time, we probably would have stayed and partied late into the night. Since the temperature was so hot inside, we ate our dessert and left the house as quickly as we could!
