Mostly True Memoirs
Strike Three – You’re Out!
Strike one was my knee injury.
Strike two was Bob’s broken wrist.
Strike three is our busted AC unit.
They can’t install the new one for two weeks.
It’s a holiday weekend, so there will be a delay in ordering parts.
No air conditioning for two weeks?
In the heat of a North Texas summer?
Luckily Home Depot has some portable AC units in stock.
It’s not perfect, but it will do nicely.
I’ve had as much misfortune as I’m going to take.
We won’t be accepting any further applications.
All the open positions have been filled.
Go away, bad luck, I’m done.
