My wife wanted to see some friends who were staying in the city.
I thought that we could make the two and a half hour drive and then come home at the end of the day.
My wife wanted to get a hotel room. At first she said that we should stay in chicago. I knew that the cost of a hotel was going to be really high. I went online to look at hotel prices and other places that were halfway between our home and the destination. I found several hotels in Orland park, illinois. Orland Park was about halfway between the two places and they have several different hotels available. My wife agreed to a cheaper hotel in Orland Park. We checked into our hotel before we met with her friends. We drove the rest of the way to our destination. On our way, the air conditioner in the car stopped working. I was totally shocked and surprised. I did not anticipate having problems with the air conditioner. By the time we arrived, my shirt was drenched with sweat and my wife had frizzy hair. I’m sure it is a story that we will be telling in 50 years, but we were both embarrassed by the whole debacle and my wife wanted to turn around and go home. I would not let her call and disappoint her friends with an excuse. They were only in the city for a few days and my wife had made plans with them several weeks in advance. They were all excited to get together and see each other.
