We were camping in the desert when the AC broke.

Most people look at you like you’re nuts when you tell them you’re going camping in the desert.

We had a small camper, but it had bathroom, a bedroom, and HVAC. We were going to be comfortable while camping. I wanted to see the stars from the desert and my bestie wanted to see if it really got cold in the desert at night. We set up camp, pulled out some food we had in the cooler, and was just getting comfortable, when the night got silent. I looked at my bestie, and she looked at me. We both said it at the same time. The HVAC system quit working. We pulled all of our stuff into the camper, and knew we had to pull out before the sun came up. We had travelled all day, and now we had to travel all night until we could find another campground, or a hotel we could afford. I started to laugh at the irony of it. We came to the desert, lost our HVAC, and now we needed a hotel with heat because it was too cold to go without it. We both began to laugh. She looked at me and said that once we found a hotel, she wanted to be the first in the shower. We flipped a coin, and then flipped another coin to see which hotel we wanted to stay at. It was an easy choice, because one of them also had our favorite restaurant in the lot. We could order from their menu and both of us be showered before they made delivery.
