You don't know HOW MUCH you'll miss something until it's gone...!
Well, theoretically I know you need water to live and that I'd probably miss it really quickly if it were gone. (NO 'probably' about it.) Here's my chance to find out. Serious water main break in my town today. But here's the kicker, no one told us about it until it was well advanced.
IF I'D KNOWN ABOUT IT I COULD HAVE FILLED MY BATHTUB WHILE I STILL HAD SOME FREAKIN' WATER!!! Until a neighbor across the street called I thought the loss in water pressure was simply my upstairs neighbor taking an extra long bath or shower. (Even though I couldn't hear them moving about.) Didn't know it was actually a break until I had NO WATER AT ALL!!! That's when the town called. Oh, better late than never!
Lesson learned: next time you lose water pressure, Yvette, don't think twice - RUN TO THE BATHROOM AND FILL THE TUB IMMEDIATELY!!!
See that old woman carrying books home from the library while covered in grime? That would be me. HA!
