Cynthia was shocked at her friend’s reaction

Cynthia once told her friend that she didn’t have a/c when she was a kid.

Before Cynthia knew it, her friend was calling her a liar and trying to make her look foolish.

The guy spouted out the dates when a/c was available in homes everywhere. He added how it was much earlier than when Cynthia went through childhood. Cynthia stood there and let him talk. When he was done, she told him she didn’t have a/c because her folks could not afford it. Cynthia knew a lot of people who had a/c in their homes. Even most of her friends loved a/c. But, they didn’t have 6 sisters and a few cousins. Her friends’ parents were scholars with excellent jobs, or there was AC in the cabin when they bought it. Cynthia remembered when her father bought their first window a/c unit. They put it in their study room and had fans to blow it through the upstairs so the whole family could all benefit from the AC. Cynthia was okay with not having perfect a/c when growing up. Her siblings would put a blanket and pillow on the roof outside their room. They’d sleep there until the mosquitoes started to bite. That’s when they chose to go inside where it wasn’t as cool to get away from the mosquitoes. Cynthia thought this would shut him up, even though she had some sharp words about mosquitoes biting when there weren’t any lights, and she walked away. She wished the a/c conversation hadn’t been brought up. But, all it did was make her friend look foolish and Cynthia chose to walk away from him.
