What did you learn from these air quotes?
It is currently -17 degrees outside, so getting some fresh air will not happen today. However, my crazy husband is going to go running in this! I hope his lungs don’t freeze, but the air will be good for his brain. Fresh air improves brain function and can make us more productive at work; all the more reason to take a nice lunchtime stroll.
Air also helps us produce clean and renewable energy. Even though air is everywhere, wind turbines need a steady source of wind, so you can’t just put them anywhere.
Air can also be a source of entertainment. Sometimes, I think flying in a hot-air balloon would be fun because unlike on a plane you can feel the air on your face, and float. However, I also like my feet on the ground, so I usually settle for flying a kite instead. I also love the water, so sailing would be a fun option.
