A Cool Invention

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     Ralph stumbled through the front door of his home and flopped onto the couch. The ceiling fan created a delightfully cool breeze in the air conditioned room.
 
2     "Ahhhh," he said as he enjoyed the cool breeze.
 
3     Dad walked in and placed a tall glass of ice water in Ralph's hand.
 
4     "Thanks, Dad," he said, gulping down the cool liquid. He stopped when he reached the bottom. Then he began crunching the half-melted ice.
 
5     "Hot outside?" Dad asked, though it was obvious that he already knew the answer.
 
6     Ralph nodded his head. "I have never appreciated air conditioning like I do today."
 
7     "I'm sure Willis would be gratified," said Dad.
 
8     "Willis?"
 
9     "Willis H. Carrier. He's the one who came up with our modern air conditioning systems," said Dad as he settled into his easy chair.
