One thing I love about living in the city is that I can get HVAC installation in Manhattan, NY in a hurry. An unexpected failure of my air conditioner left me sweating bullets for a while, but when I called an installation company, they rushed to my home with a new air conditioner faster than I could blink. They popped in the new air conditioner and took the old one out and put it on their truck without skipping a beat. It was like one of those pit crews that change the tires at the race track. They performed like a well oiled machine, or in this case, I guess a well oiled air conditioner.
My brother came over the same day with his children. If they had come while the air conditioner wasn’t working, they would have been hot, and kids don’t like to be hot for long. They start to complain, and eventually they start jumping around like cartoon characters. I did have a backup plan to deal with this in the form of water balloons and water guns, but I decided that we would save that for another day. Instead I decided to have a little cookout in the backyard.
My brother brought some chicken and I had some honeydew chopped up and chilling in the freezer. My brother and I always try to take control of the grill because each of us feels that we are a better cook than the other person. I have my own spice rub and sauce that I like to use, while my brother has his own. We decided to let the kids judge which one was better by having a competition. When we asked the kids which one they liked more, they couldn’t make up their minds. I guess to them, it didn’t matter.
