My mom seems to think that back luck always comes in threes.
I used to make fun of her for all of her superstitious ways back when I was growing up.
I thought it was all a big joke. But now, I am starting to think that she’s right. And it’s all because of this horrible week that I’ve had. This week I have had all kinds of bad things happen to me. I got a flat tire on my way to work on Monday and then on Tuesday, my kitchen sink flooded the whole first floor of my apartment. I was up to my ears in unexpected expenses, and I just started thinking that something else was bound to happen. I don’t know if I willed it on myself, but just after I thought that, my central air conditioning unit stopped working. It was one of the hottest days of the year and I was already stressed out and sweating when I heard a bang and a weird whirring noise from the furnace room in the basement. A few minutes later, I noticed that there was no longer any cold air blowing from our A/C vents. I couldn’t believe it. I mean, I half expected something else terrible to happen to me this week, but I really didn’t want it to be my air conditioning breaking down on me. I was ready to cry, because I knew that the A/C repairs were probably going to cost me a fortune. Luckily, our local HVAC company was running a special on air conditioning repairs and maintenance. Thank goodness the A/C repairs didn’t cost as much as I thought it would.
