On New Year’s Eve, I discovered that my hot water heater was dead. I had no hot water, and it was freezing outside. But I had to take a shower because I can’t function without one. I nearly froze my ass off, and was not about to go through this again.
New Years Eve was Thursday. The hot water heater was not replaced until Tuesday morning. When the guys who installed it finally finished and left, I couldn’t wait to get into that shower. I couldn’t even stand to smell myself.
When someone can’t stand to smell himself, he must really stink.
I was so excited about taking a hot shower that I couldn’t keep it to myself any longer. Before I got in, I called my mother and said, “I getting ready to take a hot shower, and I am really looking forward to it. For the time being, this is the highlight of the year.”
She laughed, and said, “It’s amazing that you learn to appreciate simple things like that, when you don’t have them. Enjoy it, and by the way, I want a full report.”
