I toss and turn from the heat in my apartment, but the location is unbeatable. I make a lot of concessions because it’s my friend whose name is actually on the lease and I’m sort of a paying guest in his domain. The biggest compromise is the temperature of the unit, which we have control over, unlike some of those Manhattan, auto-radiated residences with windows that are sealed shut. I’m from the Northeast, where everyone’s buried in snow! I don’t believe in running the heat in the upper 70’s, even 80’s, when it’s T-shirt wheather outside.
Oh, and by the way, this Curb Your Enthusiasm bit came back onto my radar because the suspected former LAPD killer on the loose gave it a shout-out in his manifesto:
“Larry David, I agree. 72-82 degrees is way to hot in a residence. 68 degrees is perfect.”
