I take it back - just kidding of course. But after being so grateful for summer and the heat I jinxed myself by posting the following update on Facebook:
"It's hot but I have relief - air conditioning. Can't help but think of those who live with this sweltering, oppressive heat and humidity every day - with no relief!"
Our trusty air conditioner gave me the cold shoulder yesterday and stopped working. The universe must have felt that I needed a little more first hand experience with the sweltering to make me truly appreciate my living conditions.
Universe, if you are listening, I get it. Lesson learned!
