I hate that feeling you get when you walk out your front door and walk to your car and you see water coming from the garage. I instantly thought of that episode of The Sopranos, only I was trying to move all our shiz out of the way from getting wet. Yeah, mawfawkin' hot water heater was leaking from like 5 places saturday as I was leaving house to go watch foosball game with a bunch of friends. Wasn't shiz I could do, except close the gas and water vales, until yesterday. FYI. If this happens to you: If you have a gas water heater, call your power company and they will give you a free electric one. If you have an electric one, call your gas company and they will give you a gas one. So the heater was free, just had to pay $250 for electrical work and $375 for plumbing work (and power company has a contractor they use who changed it out, took the old one from my house, and arranged the electrical work to be done). The good this is, if it happens again 20 years from now and I end up renting this house out, I can swap back to gas and the gas line will already be there so it will be even cheaper.
I researched tankless water heaters and they are not worth the investment. $1200 - $400 discount + $1200 for installation. The savings would take 20 years to make up for the extra cost and that is essentially the predicted life of the unit. I couldn't do it anyway, because it has to be installed outside the house and that side of the house is on the neighbor's property line.

And clearly you aren't a rapist (I hope) but the way you pop into any thread where a woman happens to be lamenting her lack of ride to Bonnaroo and tell them to come hop on your bus sounds extremely rapey.
My little 18-year old brother, my best friend in the entire world and the person I love more than absolutely anyone else in the world, has cancer. I just found out this afternoon, and it still feels surreal to say/type out.
They're doing surgery to take out one of his lymph nodes tomorrow morning to run tests to see if it's gotten into his bone marrow, so we'll know exactly what kind of cancer it is on Monday (the test results take 48 hours). They think it's either lymphoma or (if it has gotten into his bone marrow) leukemia.

I'm so sorry to hear that Kyle. That truly is devastating and I am sending good vibes your way. I really don't know how I'd react in that situation and it's sort of a fear of mine. Just be there for him and be strong and supportive. It's a terrible thing to find out but you can fight this with him.
Monday, Dee. The test results take 48 hours to process. We'll know a lot more on Monday.
And yeah, ITM, I still don't know how to really react either. Never dealt with something like this obviously. But he's handling it with such a positive, strong, amazing attitude, especially for an 18-year-old. He's really a brave kid.
