Many of you may not know about it so I will let the cat out of the bag for your protection. There is a blog curse. It is very deadly and destructive. It is worse than any internet virus and so simple, yet it can affect anyone. Here is how it works. If you blog about it, it will happen. It’s kind of like” If you build it, they will come” but different. If you write about something on your blog, you can expect something similar to happen. Well at least that is how it appears this morning.
I recently blogged about not having AC when I was growing up and yesterday, without warning and for no good reason, our AC went on the blink. It just has to be the blog curse. I am thinking about giving up blogging altogether because it is just way to dangerous. I mean what else could cause a perfectly good AC unit to fail. It has been working just fine for the 20 years it has been installed. The cooling fins were only a little bit dirty. The temperature has only been in the 90’s so far this year. It’s the curse I tell you.
Maybe it had a little bit to do with being 20 years old but I am leaning toward the curse. Ok I am just kidding about the curse. In fact I don’t believe in curses. I hear people always saying not to talk about things because they will come true but I don’t believe in that garbage. I mean I have talked about being wealthy all my life and it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe I should blog about it. :)I do occasionally knock on wood but I am not sure why I do it since I don’t know why I am doing it. I just do it because people say: “Oh you better knock on wood”. I recently heard that it has some biblical origin. Maybe one of my readers knows the answer to that. Something about knocking on a tree maybe?
I believe that things happen for a reason. I don’t always know the reason but there is a purpose for the things that happen in life. I may never know the reason this happened now but I am sure that some good will eventually come out of it. Maybe the money that I would have spent elsewhere was a bad idea and this is a better place to spend it. Maybe this will remind me to appreciate some of the things that we have become accustomed to in life and not become so dependent on luxuries. Maybe my nephew who will be looking at our AC unit this morning really needed the work. Who knows, so I am just going to go with it and not complain.
Ecclesiastes 3;1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every purpose under heaven:
I guess it was our AC unit’s time.
Have a great day,
