As much as I love my dad, he definitely has some weird beliefs.
I remember growing up on one of his most popular beliefs, which was to eat an apple every single day.
He took the saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away literally. If we ever refused, he would yell at us until we finally caved and ate the darn apple. To this day, I still hate apples. Anyways, his second weird belief actually ended up affecting us health wise. At least with the apples, they are actually healthy for you. His second belief was that only weak people use air conditioning systems. In his words, he wants to experience the temperatures just as mother nature intended it. So, even though we had a thermostat and a HVAC system, we were never allowed to touch it. The few times my dad did find me messing with the A/C thermostat, he threw a fit and grounded me for a month! This actually affected our health, because even during heat waves, he refused to relent. I once nearly passed out from the heat, it was so bad. Nowadays, as an adult, I have my own central air conditioning system which I can use whenever I want, and it is a blessing. My dad knows about this, and as you could guess, doesn’t approve. I don’t care about his opinion when it comes to this though, because I like to take advantage of modern technology, and if I can change the temperature around me, why shouldn’t I?
