When you work at a non-profit organization, you get surprised with unexpected requests from your bosses here & there. I was asked to recently attend a conference way up in the North. I’d never been that far up the country before. I was more than excited to take a few days off from work to attend this conference, so I eagerly went home to pack and get ready to head to the airport the following morning, however when I got to the airport, I was dressed for the northern weather, so I had a heavy coat on, with long jeans and work boots from when I used to work in distribution, however as I entered the airport, I was greeted with an overwhelming level of humid heat that practically left myself and others in there nauseated! It was like the airport terminal was running the heater in every single concourse, rendering the entire airport into a big huge sauna, then before I took care of my bags, I was already covered in sweat & had to take off the heavy coat & toss it over my shoulder. To make things more frustrating, I was told that the flight was cancelled, & the next flight wasn’t for many hours! I had to endure this miserably overheated airport for the entire morning. At this point, I was kicking myself for not packing any light clothes along. Thankfully, I was able to find a small bar in the airport that had excellent air conditioning, with ceiling fans that were spinning overhead to keep the place cool. With nothing better to do, I sat at the bar, taking in the cool air from their air conditioner system as I sipped a mixed drink – all this, at 11:30 in the morning.
