Taking Care of the Mail

Dear Inventors of the Pipes That Bring Water Into My Home and the Systems That Heat the Hot Water That is Brought Into My Home,

I hope you don't mind me lumping you all together into one letter. You see, I don't really know how many of you there are. I am pretty sure at least two guys. I would check Wikipedia but there is a good chance they will try to convince me that something as amazing as hot water was invented by Scrappy Doo and everyone knows that dog really wasn't good for anything.

And I am really hoping that you are somewhere hanging out with each other, patting one another on the back in congratulations. "Hot water! Let me buy you a drink!" or "Indoor Plumbing! You are the man!"

Seriously though, you figured out a way for water to be heated and then brought into my home!

I don't have to go outside to fetch water.
And not only that, but I can make the water HOT if I want it to be! I get to take looooooooong showers till the hot water runs out. This is a beautiful thing.

So as I prepare to enjoy your invention, I wanted to be sure to be thankful for your forethought.

PS: Now, what did you invent that will keep my children from bugging me while I enjoy that invention?

oh, wait.

Dear Inventor of Duct Tape,

You. Are. Awesome.
(And effective.)



  1. As a child of parents who relied on outhouses their entire childhoods, I salute you and your objects of worship. Modern plumbing is remarkable in all its forms.

  2. All you need to rule the world is a roll of duct tape and a can of WD-40.
