I don’t know if anyone else relates to this but how nice is it when you’re driving and then the sun comes perfectly through the windshield. I’m talking about when the sun comes through at a height where it doesn’t get into your eyes, but is still high enough to warm your entire body so that you don’t have to put the car heater on even though it’s the middle of winter. It’s one of my favourite sensations in the world and it makes me feel like I’m wrapped in a blanket ready for bed.
This was potentially why I got myself into a minor car crash last week. I was comfortable and warm for a solid thirty minutes which made me sleepy. The next thing I knew, I rolled too far forward whilst waiting for the traffic lights to turn green, and I hit the car in front of me. I got out of the warm car straight away, and felt the cold hit me like a truck. I was shaking from the shock of hitting another car and from being ripped out of my warm blanket heaven.
I was shaking even harder when I realised I would have to pay to get an auto repair in Adelaide for BOTH our cars. I’m not made of money by any stretch of the imagination, and I’m dreading the phone call from the other person’s insurance company. I honestly feel betrayed by the sun and the warmth. It was my favourite thing in the world and now it is well and truly ruined. I’m not going to be able to just bask in the warmth of the sun anymore, in case it makes me too tired again.
I’m going to have to get a car air con regas so that I can pump my air conditioner any time that I get too comfortable. I can’t even describe how disappointed that makes me. I’m going to miss feeling the warmth on my body.
