I was visiting my friend one summer weekend.
We grew up with Rosa, my friend.
They moved in next door two years after we purchased my parent’s home. We instantly clicked and became great friends who did everything together. We were at each other’s houses so much the neighbors thought we were related, that our parents were relatives. When we grew up, the bond became stronger. We would not go a week without seeing each other. On A Particular Thai weekend, I had decided to stay over at her place because it was summer and we had planned to go to the beach. The first day I got there, we had brunch and then went out partying. The next morning was rough as we were nursing horrible hangovers. Just as we were about to have brunch, the quality air conditioner malfunctioned. Even the thermostat stopped working. We called the air conditioning company and luckily got an appointment for the next hour. The a/c serviceman would take the system through comprehensive HVAC maintenance. Rosa stated that this would be the first session since the HVAC installation was done, two years ago. The air conditioning technician was very good-looking and knew more about air conditioning by how efficient he was. He proceeded with executing air conditioning repair on the multi-split air conditioning system. He sent for a few components from the air conditioning provider that would replace the worn-out parts. Rosa commented on how good-looking the professionals from the indoor comfort business were or was it the entire cooling industry. We had continued drinking to cure the hangover and when the air quality was restored, we saw a reason for a full-blown celebration party. Some of the professionals from the air conditioning company also came to the party.
