I should have been an oracle

At the beginning of winter, our furnace died. This required us to finance a new furnace and coil. We're still paying for it, and probably will be for years.

I predicted when it happened that we were creating a jalopy. We had a fifteen year old air conditioner attached to a brand spanking new furnace. I announced that the air conditioner would fail as soon as we turned it on.

Sometimes, being right isn't all it's cracked up to be. It turns out a replacement air conditioner is even more expensive than a furnace. The compressor is shot and cannot be repaired.

My wife is going to look into financing options. I kind of wanted to replace my old dog, but that may have to wait until next year. Even regular meals might have to wait until next year.

If I managed to sell 5000 books in the next 30 days that would help. My oracle vibe is telling me that won't happen.

There is an air conditioner in my truck. Maybe we can set out there this summer.

Why don't I get oracle vibes about the right lottery numbers, or even the Kentucky Derby?
