All I wanted to do was go home.

I had planned a romantic getaway for our birthday.

I had reservations made at a newly renovated hotel that was within walking distance of the beach.

There was a eating establishment in the hotel my partner had been dying to try, and I had reservations., I had our bags packed and in the vehicle when she got home. The two of us were almost at the hotel when I saw a smile of recognition on her face. This was the same hotel we had gone to on our honeymoon. After riding in a vehicle with the thermostat at sixty for the last several seconds, the seventy-more than four degree lobby offered me a shiver. The further we walked, the shivers turned into perspiration, and I was having a difficult time breathing because of the humidity. I asked if there was a problem with the a/c, since it was hot and the humidity was dreadful. I was told the only locale where the A/C was working was in the eating establishments. After supper, we headed to the boardwalk to check out the scenery. It was so hot outside that we ended up in another hotel, enjoying the a/c. It was time to go back to our hotel and get ready for supper, and I hoped they had the A/C repaired, but it wasn’t to be. My partner and I didn’t unpack and right after supper, we headed home. They said the A/C was going to be down for the rest of the night and all I wanted to do was go home. They offered us all of my currency back and we got a free two-night stay for anytime we wanted to return.
