Three Word Wednesday: acrid, bane, tepid

Warning: From the National Weather Service ... EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING in effect until Wednesday, Jul 7, 8:00 PM; Additional advisories also in effect

A BOOM and a foul, acrid smell,
Transformer exploded, then fell.
Without any power,
This damned tepid shower,
Is the bane of my AC-less hell.

(go ahead and read it out loud... no one is watching you)

Here is today's Three Word Wednesday

===== Feel free to comment on this or any other post.


  1. I did read it out loud! O what a hoot! O the trials and tribulations of technology! Love it!

  2. Technology is a wonderful thing.

    When it works....

  3. I did, too, and it worked on a whole different level.

  4. I hope your AC's back online
    That you're feeling cool, and fine
    The lack of AC
    In a hundred degrees
    Is surely an Apocalypse sign.

  5. and your poem made me laugh...

    LOL. Tepid showers, unless in the middle of a Bakersfield Summer, are a real drag.

    (and thanks for commenting on my 3ww today!)
