a swamp cooler
it's night time. i'm typing in rhythm with the consistent burbling hum of the swamp cooler. a swamp cooler, for those of you who live in places where the humidity surpasses the intense percentage of 10%, is an alternative to an air conditioner. it lives on our roof. it is a strange shade of olive. it evaporates air and does something magical to it in the bowels of my house turning it into a delicious cool stream. it uses virtually no electricity.
i am not someone who is enamored of gadgets. i try to be, but i'm not. however, the swamp cooler has won my heart.
thank you swamp cooler for changing my life. when you call my answer will always be, "yes please!"
