In moving down south, I recently found something pretty important about myself: pride will be my pitfall. I always felt (and always will) that living up north is not really for the feint of heart. Heating a home and yourself is much more difficult and taxing on the body than cooling a home. So I was pretty stuck up about being a Yankee, chopping and stacking our very own wood, shoveling and scraping just so that you discover your car for work, and hopefully your car actually turns over. Cars get very irritated in the winter. I felt that since the southern temperatures aren’t fatal to humans without air conditioning access as the cold up north is unsafe to those without heat, northerners have been inherently stronger. But after a few months down here, I am beginning to see the error of my ways. Heat does kill. The psychologist in me knew this from day one of Introduction to Psych. There is a positive correlation between heat and murders. As a teacher down here, I can inform you of how important functioning A/C units can be for classrooms. Rising temperatures and rising tempers do not mix well. There has been a rash of arguments and physical altercations between our students, and it’s also not a coincident we are right in the course of a heat wave. Unfortunately, our lunch room, being the largest area within the school, doesn’t cool down as much as the smaller classrooms and workplaces do. It is also where most issues happen. We’ve upped the ante on lunchroom monitors, and sorry to say, I’m on duty today. Living down here is not for the weak of heart.
