Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I are currently working through a disagreement over whether to get a portable air conditioner. For ten years now we've been able to get by with only one AC unit, which is up in my office, relying on the high ceilings, ceiling fans, and other elements that keep the house bearable in the summer. This current heatwave has finally got me willing to give in on this, but as has been repeatedly demonstrated, my willpower pales in comparison with my better half's as she is remaining stubbornly steadfast in her refusal to consider this.

Heh, I noticed women hate the AC like my mom, my friend's mom, etc. They always say too cold (not even hot to them) and too expensive. Blue, I am also upstair and it goes up to 90F degrees during the heat waves. How hot is it in in your office room? :(

My office is the finished attic... I have never experimented, but I would bet anything that without AC it would have reached the 120s up here every day last week.

How do the dogs feel? Do they vote for AC too?

I would say they do. This is my best argument for getting another AC unit, but so far has not helped. It's worse for Gunnar-man, but after I gave him a haircut last week and he's been much more comfortable, so while I'm happy for him, I didn't help my cause.
