Dust Buster

"See all this here dust built up on the back of your tank?" the kindly gentleman had pulled the equivilant of a small woodland creatire from behind the unit. "Know what this is to an open flame?"

"Uh, it goes poof?" I guessed.

He tossed the lint to the floor away from the tank. "It turns into explosive material. It's really good you called when you did..."

I found out that not only was my hit water tank located entirely too close to the drye, but it was plotting to kill me too! With a lint bomb! Further proof that my appliances really are trying to kill me is that as I was finishing up making my plate for dinner the pan full of freshly made Alfredo JUMPED from the stovetop and dove at my bare feet. I sidestepped the goo but not before it spooged all over the front of my pants.

I'm convinced my house is really trying to kill me!!!

If only the Sunday Morning headlines could be that honest, eh?
