Singing to the air conditioning
When our air conditioner quit working, it first started to make some really odd noises. It had a type of rhythm and beat to it. I was actually enjoying the sound that it was making, even if I did know that there was possibly a really bad problem with the AC unit. I had already called the HVAC company, so instead of worrying about the air conditioning, I started having fun with it. My daughter and I were dancing around the house and making up songs that would go with the beat it was playing at the moment. She stuck with rap and I was sticking with country, and eventually we had the entire house cleaned. I will admit, that at times the sound was annoying, but it helped to make a tedious chore, fun to finish. I will also admit that when the HVAC company finally arrived to repair the air conditioner, we were ready. I didn’t know my daughter was recording our ‘impromptu session’ the entire time we were cleaning. She told me she just wanted to keep some of the songs we had been singing. It wasn’t until I heard her playing them back for her friends, that I knew they weren’t just for her. I too had to laugh when I realized she had showcased the ‘music’ of the air conditioning when she recorded the music. She said the AC unit had a better beat and tone than either one of us, and she was right. She asked me if I thought the furnace would be breaking down any time soon, so she could add its music to this recording.
