Even though both of us now unfortunately live far apart, myself and my brother have very constantly stayed close.
Both of us were best friends when both of us were young bucks, and that lasted all the way till adulthood.
Both of us completely cheered each other on and helped each other through our darkest and most oppressive moments. Both of us were both sad when both of us eventually had to transport out and live on their own, however both of us both swore to keep in contact. Now, both of us do our best to meet up a few times a month to just talk and catch up about life. The last few times, my brother has endlessly complained about how unfortunately warm his condo is. I asked whether he had his gas furnace on stuck full blast, since both of us just got out of winter. But he reported that had already turned the heating plan off, with no luck. His condo was still always incredibly hot. After a while, I had forgotten about the subject of the extreme heat until I was invited into his condo and was reminded of how horrendously warm she had claimed it was in there. My brother had dark circles under his eyes and slowly complained of lack of sleep due to the overbearing heat. I then personally tested his cooling system, which to my surprise, was this entirely tiny little thing located in the kitchen, barely freezing enough to cool even a single room. Apparently he had just purchased it and figured it would be enough to service his house, which it obviously wasn’t. In case he wanted professional help, I directed him politely to a HVAC corporation that I had an enjoyable experience with.
