Here's an idea:
When you find water dripping into the basement, and you trace it to the cupboard under the kitchen sink, which is full of water, and so it's clearly a kitchen sink leak, and so you oh-so-dutifully call the plumber immediately, because this-is-our-home-and-that's-water-damage-we're-talking-about ... and, so-let's-not-mess-around-and-think-we-can-solve-this-ourselves ... because-of-course-we-can't...
Well, not so fast, missy. Before you incur that $60 plumbing bill, like some people might have done, why don't you check those gallon jugs of water that you had under the sink? What? One of them leaked? Problem solved. All by yourself. And now you can congratulate yourself on being much smarter than I am.
New Year's Resolution:
Lose a few pounds.
Stop eating all the stuff that I've been shoveling in for the last week-and-a-half.
Eat it all right now so that it won't tempt me later.
Uh-huh. I think it makes sense.
