Day 3081: Capacity

I have the capacity to

  • blog daily,
  • connect with others,
  • feel empathy,
  • speak the truth, and
  • work during a heat wave when our central air conditioning system is not working because of a broken capacitor.

After reaching out to many HVAC repair people since Saturday, we finally found one who had the capacity to respond to our requests, to show up last night at 10 PM without charging us overtime rates, and to diagnose and fix the problem in less than 30 minutes.

Many other HVAC experts did not have the capacity to respond to our pleas for help and one with a very good rating online didn’t have the capacity to show up yesterday as he had promised or to call us and let us know.

Now our central air conditioning system with its new capacitor has the capacity to cool us down on another 90 degree+ day.

I don’t seem to have the capacity to stop thinking about the flux capacitor from “Back to the Future,” but I usually have the capacity to associate EVERYTHING with a film or a song.

I had the capacity to find this video about the flux capacitor on YouTube:

Yesterday, I had the capacity to take these photos in the heat before our central air capacitor was replaced:

As you can see from the photos above, Michael has the capacity to reach and remove Trump stickers that I can’t.

I have the capacity to use Twitter as a distraction from discomforts.

Now that I AM chilling, I have the capacity to notice that The Flux Capacitors band have the capacity to cover “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.”

If you have the capacity to leave a comment, please do so.

As you might know, I have an unlimited capacity to express gratitude, so thanks to all who help me maintain my capacity to blog every day, including YOU.

    So glad your a/c is fixed! Phew! Also: I love your Twitter responses, which make me smile. I’m not a Twitter regular, or I’d give you some likes there.

    I;m glad you got your AC fixed, Ann

  4. You had the capacity to comment that Michael has the capacity to reach and remove Trump stickers that you can’t before I could comment the same!

  5. i’m so glad that you found a hvac worker with the capacity for a work ethic and empathy. i’m especially happy to see that your tiger has the ability to look suave even in a heat wave.

  6. Hope you find your cool and balance soon Ann ⛄️

  7. Lately I’ve been listening to people share their reactions to watching Back To The Future and other movies for the first time. Somehow sharing their joy at discovering something so familiar to me takes me back to my own first experience and all the wonder that came with it.

  8. Anybody who will show up at 10:00 p.m. to fix your air conditioning is a keeper! I hope you gave them a great review on Google!

  9. I’m glad to have the capacity to be able to commend you for maintaining your blogging streak without experiencing a meltdown in the heat! You DO have amazing capacity, Ann!

  10. You have the capacity to make me smile no matter the subject, Ann. So glad that you got your AC fixed. We’re having similar problems here and hope to get the repairs done soon. Have a great day!

    • You have the capacity to make me smile no matter what too, Lori. I hope the repair people have the capacity to fix your AC problem, and soon!

  11. I am glad there is one good HVAC company out there, Ann, and the one that made an appointment and broke it without a word, well, they deserve online heat until an explanation is posted.

  12. Too much capacity and great expectations may be disagreeable.
