Love - definitively defined!
I know what love is..... (actually i always have)........
It is NOT young puppy love.........
It is not flowers and music and hearts and kisses
It is bottled water.
Yes I said "bottled water"
For the last few days out here on the West of the Great Island - there have been water troubles - and no one much was talking about them - just basically telling everyone to ignore the brown water coming out of their taps.
I didn't have brown water - I didn't worry
Last night - like every night - I did my thing and went for my bath and bed. And like many of the last nights I woke at 3:30 and came on the pc - there was an email from W.
DON'T DRINK THE WATER!!! He said the news (something I rarely if EVER listen to or watch) was saying the water out here on the West of the Great Island was bad - nasty bad. Don't drink it - don't brush your teeth with it - don't bother boiling it - that kind of bad.
I figured if it was THAT bad the city would have contacted us (they have this neat phone system where they can - with one phone call - leave messages/talk to every citizen ) I didn't get one.. their website stated it wasn't my area - so I calmly wrote back to W (at 3:30 am) I am fine don't worry - it isn't me. Besides I had 2 glasses of water this evening and I am fine health wise. AND I wrote I am betting there won't be a bottle of water to be had in the shops. Then I went back to bed.
At 7:50 when I woke up for good....... there was an email from W - DON'T DRINK THE WATER! And he added he was going to drive out here to the condo at 6 F--KING AM and drop off 2 big bottles of water he had in the house.
I sleepily made my way downstairs - and there sitting on my kitchen counter were 2 BIG bottles of water. No W. He had turned around and gone home. BUT I was now safe from germy creatures in the water.
That ladies and gents........ THAT is the definitive definition of what LOVE is !
I rest my case.
