I’m one of those people who has really terrible luck.
If something can go wrong in my life, it probably will.
I don’t like to think of myself as a pessimist or as someone who’s always waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I’ve learned to anticipate the unexpected. Furthermore, I have primed myself to respond with good humor instead of rage or complete defeat. That’s why, I didn’t have to throw a tantrum the other day when I had a massive mouth full of bugs fall straight on me. Instead, I just got back and let out a hearty chuckle while I ran into the bathroom and scrubbed my face clean. You see, my husband and I have been living in this residence for a few years now. For as long as we’ve been here, we haven’t been able to utilize the whole house fan which is supposed to easily ventilate the large house with extreme energy efficiency. There is a large fan installed in the attic, and the only evidence of it is some strange looking flaps contained in the ceiling of our hallway. When you turn on the fan, the flaps are supposed to open and the fan powerfully draws air up into the attic. If you open the doors and windows, this sucks refreshing outdoor air through your home and create an awesome airflow. However, we’ve never been able to get the fan to work. We decided to force the flaps open, to see if we could work on the fan from down below. As I carefully prodded the fan ventilation flaps from down below, I heard something strange and crunchy up above. Just then, about a hundred dead bugs came raining down on to my face. Why not.
