My friends and I go to this tourist spot about an hour from town. We made a habit of going here as a group every winter break, just so we could catch up on lost time and have some good old juvenile fun. Most of the touristy stuff is concentrated along this street in the village, and there’s dozens upon dozens of shops where people sell clothes, novelty gifts, food, drinks, and even cigars. Aside from the common draws, I always enjoyed going to see this one guy in the alley who was a street magician. This year I couldn’t find him in the street, but I found out he was spotted by a local talent who gave him a job working for one of the shops! When I went into the store he allegedly worked in, I didn’t see him at first. Then I walked closer, and I spotted him wearing this super-realistic mask. When I saw him, he actually recognized me and tore his “face” off to greet me! He was running a magic shop now, and did tricks for tourists to pull them in. I was thrilled to see him with a legitimate job, but I couldn’t help but notice how hot it was in the room. The magician could tell that I noticed, too, and he said he hated how hot his room was. He’d mentioned it a few times to his manager, but the guy says the building is too old and cramped to do anything besides set up a box fan. I felt bad for him, but he said not to feel too bad – he still works at night on the street, where the air is cool and the tips are way better! I told him he should consider getting a portable air conditioner for the shop if he can’t do anything about the central air. He dismissed it at first, but then I could tell it sounded pretty enticing to him after the fact. Who knows, maybe next year I’ll find his shop and be much cooler.
