So, the guy from Mr. Sparky came and fixed the ceiling fan that fell out the ceiling last night. It wasn’t even running. I already did a post about it so I’m not gonna rehash. My sister came home on her lunch break to meet the guy and, idk, explain it from the woman’s side or something. He saw her military shadow box and awards, so they talked about that. She always gets thanked for her service. She’s even gotten out of speeding tickets because of the veteran bumper sticker.
Anyway, she was here for about 30 minutes and went back to work. The guy explained to me all about what he was going to do and then went up in the creepy attic to put in some new thing and blah blah blah. I had to resist every urge I had to want to help. I do that even when I have no clue what’s going on. I always want to make people’s jobs easier.
The attic is super hot, so he was like, “Do you mind if I take my shirt off”? No, seriously, go ahead. I had one of those erotic fix-it guy fantasies for about 2 seconds, then told myself to grow up.
He was a talker. He worked quick, but talked the whole time. I didn’t mind. Normally, I do. Oh yeah, he also fixed the smoke alarm which, for some odd reason, wasn’t connected correctly. I blame that on the same ghost that made the ceiling fan just magically fall out of the ceiling.
I signed everything that I was supposed to sign. It was all covered in a warranty. No cost.
It was all quick and painless. Since I always imagine he WORST scenario, I just knew that it would be some super-complicated thing that would take weeks or even months. I tell myself to stop doing that, but the second I do, it really will be a super-complicated thing that takes forever.
This post has nothing to do with temper. Tempter maybe, because of the shirt thing. Idk. 😐
Oh yeah, my house burned down and I lost everything on August 8, 1988. That’s 8/8/88. It was an electrical issue. So, when I saw that phone number I was like, “umm, gee, I don’t know about this”.
and then somebody rebuilt on that lot, and 4 years ago a tornado came through the town and killed 5 people. Two were in that house. So yeah, it’s a voodoo lot.
