Tonight was date night for me and my husband. We hadn’t been on a date in a couple of months, and so we were really glad when we were able to get a babysitter at the last minute so that we could go out to dinner and to a movie. There was a special at our favorite restaurant – all you can eat shrimp – and they also had happy hour that was extended to 8pm, and so we got to have all the alcoholic drinks that we wanted! The only bad thing about our favorite restaurant tonight was the problem with the indoor air quality in the dining room. Usually, the high quality HVAC system in the restaurant is simply amazing. They never have the air conditioning turned down too low in the summertime, and they never have the furnace turned up too high in the wintertime. Tonight though, there was an issue with their HVAC system and we ended up having a rough night for our date night. The air conditioning wasn’t working very well and the HVAC contractor hadn’t been able to come to the restaurant to do maintenance on the A/C unit yet. So we were a little bit toasty as we sat there at our table. Being a little too hot made me thirsty and I just wanted to drink more. But then the more I drank, the hotter I felt! It was a vicious cycle and I ended up getting pretty drunk. I was ready to get out of there and head into a well air conditioned movie theater, but it turns out the theater was having air conditioning issues too! We gave up and just went back home. Date night was a bust.
