Yesterday was one of those great days that quickly turns bad after a single, stupid, upsetting event.
Quite often, the town where we live will cut off the water for a few hours at a time. Yesterday I woke up to no water .. don't worry I have bottles of water so I was able to brush my teeth, etc. I then tweeted something snarky about how they cut the water off just in time for people to go to work. Boy, did karma have it out for me yesterday.
I came home from work in the afternoon to find out that the water was still turned off. I checked the faucet downstairs in the kitchen and upstairs in the bathroom. I quickly got ready and ran out to meet up with my private tutoring family. Almost two hours later I walk into my apartment and am suddenly surprised by how much it sounds like a waterfall. Well, low and behold .. there was a waterfall! The water was pouring down from my ceiling, into the kitchen. Turns out I had very very stupidly left the faucet open when I was checking to see if the water had been turned on!
Luckily for me, I had over an hour and 6 clean towels that I quickly
snatched borrowed to clean up my mess before Paris came home. I kept thinking to myself, I am definitely NOT telling anyone about this. I mean, what a careless mistake! Thank goodness nothing was damaged. No electronics in the kitchen, the carpet upstairs .. no damage. And I cleaned up all the water well enough that Paris didn't even notice when he came home. I eventually told him a few hours later but swore him to secrecy because if his family found out I would probably never hear the end of it.
