Last year, my sibling surprised me by calling out to me for the first time in over a decade. It had been so long since I had talked to him, that I could not even remember why we ever stopped talking. When he called me, it was as if nothing had ever been off. It was clear that he was over whatever the issue was and that he missed me, unquestionably just as much as I missed him. The reason he decided to call was that he had a potential plan for a trip, which would entail several of us driving across the country in search of our purpose and place in this world. Essentially he wanted to go soul-searching together. The Heating and Air Conditioning plan in his van however had been breaking out apparently and we needed to have some A/C experts look it over before we embarked on our journey. That last little heating and cooling bit was tacked on after I had already agreed to make time for the trip. So the air conditioner at the very least had to be repaired, since the van is navy green and it was Summer. The A/C in my beach house once had problems and I’m pretty proud of the fact that I was able to get my indoor air conditions concerns ironed out. So I thought that maybe I could take a look at the old van’s air conditioner and potentially repair it if I could. Unfortunately, when I went in to take a look, the Heating and Air Conditioning plan was completely shot. I had the cash on hand though, so I paid to have it replaced.
