The Appliance Virus
So, Saturday the dryer caught this mechanical virus that's going around and died. Then yesterday while we were on our way to a meeting at the Habilitation Center the car overheated, due probably to a water pump going bad...still waiting to hear from the garage ICU on that one...
Then in the afternoon my daughter says "The washer is leaking." It appears that the washer had caught the appliance virus from it's partner, the dryer, and it died as well. What a shame, they loved each other so much and they were only three years old.
The hall bathroom faucet also has the virus...and I'm watching the toaster closely for symptoms.
How come it can never be just ONE major thing that breaks down? And why do they all break down right before Christmas?
Answer: Appliances are a sentient evil beings who take great pleasure in our angst.
