Remember the flame broiling oven? How about the frozen fridge? Remember how I said the only thing left to go out was the water heater? It did.
It died on Saturday but I was too scared to call Krista, our landlord, until this morning. I didn't want to be kicked out for bad appliance ju-ju 2 days before Christmas. But I got tired of 2 minute showers. She laughed and said she'd tell the plumber.
He showed up this afternoon, changed the bottom element (changed the top last fall) and 40 minutes later we had hot water! We celebrated by using it for showers that were long enough to get clean AND shave my legs in.
I'm not going to jinx us by saying nothing else can break now but... what's left?
