Last summer, I stayed at a friend’s house while my home was being remodeled. It was the hottest stretch our town had seen in years. To make things worse, his air conditioning Rochdale unit decided to crash and burn one miserable afternoon. He tried calling every repair place in the phone book, but no one would be available for several hours. It seemed everyone else was having the same problem.
We tried to tough it out for a while, but finally decided we just couldn’t take it anymore. We decided to go to the mall; it was always nice and cool there. Just as we were heading out the door, the air conditioner came back on! It was the weirdest coincidence either of us had ever experienced, and definitely a welcome one.
