When this man is done filling up the holes in this building, he will pull up his swing to the rooftop and make his way down through its icy halls. His feet will be a bit cold and he might get to deal with a mild cough later on, especially in case he ran into a child that locked itself out and he tried to help, which caused him to spend considerably more time inside the building than strictly necessary. But no matter, for as he steps through the front door onto the pavement, taking in a deep breath of real, hot and polluted air – the same air he has been breathing all day, suspended in it, so to speak – he feels reinvigorated. I imagine he might go out tonight in a swinging pair of dancing shoes, show the lady's what's what on an open air dance floor, until it's time to put those slippers back on.

When the father of the child that locked itself out returns home, he is in a hurry. The worst parts of his day are the moments he has to spend outside, where its hot and sticky and the air is filled with gasses and smells and dust and God knows what. Sometimes it almost makes him gag. To him there is no greater joy then to step through that same front door, only to feel that breeze of clean air, meticulously conditioned to be cool.
