--- 1 ---May I pour you a refreshing glass of chlorine? Our water provider is doing a "chlorine burn out" over the next few weeks. As a result, everyone's water smells like chlorine and has a brown tinge with some occasional sediment in it. But the city swears it's safe to drink. Every time I look in the toilet, I always want to accuse my kid of not flushing. But it's just the discolored water. Gross. Fortunately, what comes out of the filtered water dispenser in our fridge tastes, smells and looks fine.
I'm no math expert. Maybe Kramer on Seinfeld was on to something when he tried to cancel his mail service.

It's sort of pain to have to walk out to the driveway, pick up the newspaper and then toss it into the recycle bin. Maybe if I leave the recycle bin out front, the paper delivery person can save me the trouble and throw the unwanted newspaper directly into the bin.
