I feel a chill in the air

We’ve all read “News of the Weird” stories, but one actually happened on my block yesterday.

My dry cleaner saw the whole thing.

falling acA man was innocently walking down the street when an air conditioner suddenly fell from an apartment window overhead and hit him on the arm — instant compound fracture.


Of course it could have been a hundred times worse.  It could have hit him on the head and killed him…like Greg Kinnear in the movie Ghost Town. 

But my dry cleaner said all the conversation at the scene was about the insurance claim.

I smell lawsuit!
