Chocolate Croissants and Wilted-ness

This morning we had a few meetings, all scheduled at Caffit, a cafe on Emek Refaim. It's a hot morning, but there was a nice breeze and a shady place to sit, which was good, because we were there for nearly 3 hours. At our first meeting, Adam and Emil both ordered chocolate croissants. Emil's arrived just as expected and just like what you'd imagine a chocolate croissant to look like. Adam's arrived a while later. It looked like a regular (plain) butter croissant, you know, just like you see the Pillsbury Doughboy advertising on TV. But this one was special. It was cut down the center, and most of an Elite chocolate bar was placed on the inside. You could still see the imprint of the cow (the symbol of Elite chocolate) on the parts that weren't melted yet. It was like a candybar sandwich than a breakfast pastry. Adam did not complain.

It's noon now, and it's hard to believe that one can feel so utterly wilted this early in the day. The shade and breeze at the cafe were not at all reflective of the actual day's heat....

Perhaps, you'll get 'conditioned' to enjoy AIR CONDITIONING.

Hey Toby!

I saw a show that said that enjoying or not enjoying A/C was hereditary. Is this true, or can I really condition myself, like "anonymous" said?

Can't Overemphasize Ontological Lassitude

P.S. I can't find the cord to my window A/C unit. Do you know where it is?
