    Sometimes I wish we had a forum called "LIFE" or something, because this isn't really "gay".

    This morning a car went out of control, and struck the water line going into our condo complex. The pipe is exposed above ground at that point, because of the city water pipes crossing the river within the bridge next to our complex, before the pipes go back underground.

    So suddenly without warning we have no water. And my husband was just getting ready to cook food for a musical recital we're attending tonight, 25 miles north of here. And of course we've gotta take showers and shave.

    He always panics in a crisis, a wonder to behold. "I can't have my coffee!" "Ah... your Keurig coffeemaker has a full tank, enough for several cups, it's got all the water you need."

    "But I need water to boil all my pasta!" "We have several jugs of water, and I can get all you need from the supermarket. The only thing we can't do is shower, but we have enough bottled water for you to shave and for us to take sponge baths. We'll be fine."

    30 minutes ago the water began flowing again, slowly at first as the pipes refilled & pressurized, several hours ahead of the city estimates for the repair. We really do have a good city here.

    So an interesting day in Paradise. Never a dull moment. icon_rolleyes.gif

    sigh Yes. Agreed. Sometimes I just want to share my life experiences and my ups and downs with people. The forum should be called "Fucking Life". icon_lol.gif

    I wish I had your problems.
