I can tell you that I have never been the type of person who enjoyed spending my time with barflies.
When it comes to my favorite activities on this planet, they generally do not include drinking beer with a bunch of dirt balls. I am much happier being by myself, drawing, writing, and exploring my introspective existence. All of that being said, I can tell you that there are times when I will take a local bar over my own house. Namely, when the outdoor air temperature dips below zero degrees. You see, I have a rather inefficient heating and cooling system at my house. When I moved into the residence the realtor told me that the heating and cooling units were about 5 years old. The truth is, the forced air furnace and air conditioning unit are about 25 years old. I have been saving up my money as much as possible to replace the entire ventilation system with something that will actually manage the indoor air temperature. However, this means that I have to be very careful with my monthly spending on my utilities and energy bill in order to put money in the bank. I cannot count on my HVAC system to provide any kind of indoor temperature control without racking up an enormous Energy bill. So, every time the outdoor air temperature starts to take a nosedive I like to relocate somewhere else. I can avoid using my own central heating system if I go hang out at one of the local bars in town. As long as it’s warm and I have ear plugs, I can get by for the sake of my HVAC goals.
