"How can they ask that of people?" Say, I. "I have a child! How can I go all day without water when I have a CHILD???" I asked. "Why can't they work on it for a few hours one day, and a few hours the next day?" I whined. "This is inSANE! They can't do this to people!"
Her reply? "Well, just hope none of you has to go #2." (True, dat!)
"But what about the toilet paper from #1? Just throw it away? GROSS!!"
And then I went to check my email.
And by so doing, I had to see MSN's home page.
Where I saw that thousands of people in Japan had been without water for almost a week. With no end in sight for some places. And as I lamented over my horrible misfortune and I thought maybe I should go spend the day in Stansbury with my sister, I saw that thousands of people didn't have a home anymore. Didn't have a job because the factory where the work has been destroyed. My biggest complaint was that my family wasn't going to be able to shower or flush the toilet for twelve hours and yet there are thousands of people who are still looking for members of their family.
So last night I filled up several pans of water and set them out so I wouldn't have to suffer without water today.
And then I got the hell over myself.
