ADAM MARSTON writes poems. Once, a friend came over and was aghast to see Adam's windowsill air conditioner. "I thought those were like, a joke or something," the friend said. "Wow," the friend said. However rude, they were still friends, and that was the main problem. There wasn't any more story between them. The air conditioner cooled them both off so well that neither felt conflicted about what the friend had said about it. Eventually, they both agreed that the friend needed to get home, which the friend did. The air conditioner was already home and still is.
