Lindsay’s air conditioner was on the fritz Tuesday. This has happened a few times since her brand new a/c was installed a few years ago; yes, it annoys both she and I to no end.
The drain pipe keeps getting clogged and she went a day with no a/c and it was 80* inside her condo; no outside air moving through at her place either.
We had a high of 92* yesterday; it’s summer y’all.
She and I tried to troubleshoot over the phone, then she said: “I wonder if I can clear out the clog, I was kind of paying attention when the guy came last time”.
So, while face-timing her dad they MacGyver-ed it out together.
Overhearing the conversation made me smile.
Do you have a wire hanger? No, you’ve never been to the dry cleaner?
Yes, you have to stick your finger in the congealed gunk.
How about a pipe cleaner?
Hmmm….how about your vacuum cleaner; does it have a hose attachment?
Hmmm….how about your blow dryer? Try that. Oh, you don’t have an extension cord?
And so on.
Me wondering when in my life did I acquire all those items to have on hand at any given moment.
Finally, between the blowdryer (the cord was just long enough) and hot water from her kettle, the clog was cleared and she was ECSTATIC to have cool air again.
I think JOY from the accomplished job was as good as the feeling of being cool again;
her face was LIT.
I awoke at 5:30 this morning with a smile on my face knowing she won’t be uncomfortable today.
If you need me this afternoon, this non-morning girl will be napping.
One of my blooming orchids from this week; that is a non-adjusted pic.
It’s that LIT.
