Sometimes I stand with the fridge door open for a long time, contemplating the contents. Sometimes I have the heat on in the house with the window open in my room. Sometimes I drive my car with the window rolled down and the AC blasting. Then I remember I pay the bills. I note that wasting energy is just not very responsible. So I close the fridge. I turn off the heat. I roll up the window. But I have to admit a certain satisfaction in the momentary defiance. But ultimately, I realize, you were right.
