I knew I shouldn’t have said it out loud.
Sporadically, if I say certain things out loud, they will come true.
I suppose it’s love that saying unspoken fears come true, or something along those lines. Anyways, the beach home I bought had pretty bad previous owners, and the beach home had to be repaired in a lot of ways, since it had been neglected for so long. The Heating plus A/C component was by far the worst, the original heating and cooling serviceman told me I should just plain get a current 1, but since I didn’t want to do that, I had to find another Heating plus A/C professional who was willingly to repair it for me. Thankfully that heating and A/C tech did a great task, and the Heating plus A/C component was working almost love new. However, the cooling serviceman did warn me that while it worked now, it might now last for that long, and that I should be preparing for a current Heating plus A/C installation. I understood this, even though I hoped that the seasoned component could last as long as possible. A year passed, and I was feeling pretty confident in the cooling machine. It lasted through the brutal Wintertide and blazing summer, and fall and Wintertide as well. It was great! I even remarked to our partner how well it was doing and how long it has lasted. As soon as the words left our lips I regretted saying it, because then I sad the A/C component would chop down. My partner reassured me that that would not happen. The really next day though, the A/C component did just that, and it broke down. I knew I should have kept our mouth shut.
