Fright of the frost-bite.....!!

About 8-10 years ago, my dad got an air conditioner installed in my room. It was an old, noisy Videocon model, but it served the purpose. Dad always used to tell me that never put it on full power as it sucks up a lot of electricity. So we had to use it only when required. But for my little brothers, it was a big joke. And guess what! I was in charge of seeing to it that the AC is not kept on “super cool” mode. One day, when the four of us, my cousin sister, my twin brothers and I were playing in my room, my brothers wanted to test the “super cool” function of the AC. Trying to be a good sister, I didn’t allow them to. They were nagging me a lot. They asked me for the reason why permission was not granted. My sister took the opportunity and told them a story. This is what she narrated.
“Once, when my dad had installed an AC in my house, I put the AC on full blast. No one was there at home. I didn’t heed to my dad’s warning. Suddenly, everything started to freeze! The windows, the doors, the bed, mirrors-everything! There was snowfall in the room! I started feeling so cold. But I couldn’t move as I was freezing too! I found it difficult to breathe. I couldn't feel my body. My hands were turning blue. I thought I was going to die. All this happened in the span of two minutes! Fortunately, my dad came home few minutes later and saved me. We had to change all the furniture destroyed by the ice. It was terrible…..”

My brothers stared with their mouths open. They didn’t want that to happen here. They fell for the story! Both of us controlled our laughter with great difficulty. And I never had to keep a constant eye on them, because I knew they would never use the “super cool” function on the AC.
I still tease them with this incident. Too embarrassing for them! *SIGH* one of those wonderful childhood memories……(wink!)(giggle!)
