I spent the morning reading Wil Wheaton's Tumblr thing, where I felt thankful for his sane anger + good cheer and where I came across this poster, which I tweaked it a bit.
Also came across on his blog Wil's "Seven Things I Did to Reboot My Life",
I LOVE that his list includes "Watch more movies."
The article starts off:
About twenty years ago, I had a portable spa in the back yard of my first house. One day, the heater stopped working, so I called a repairman to come out and look at it. He told me that there would be an $85 charge no matter what, and I told him that was okay. When he got to my house, he opened up the access panel where the heater, pump, and filter lived. He looked inside, then looked back at me.
“Did you try pushing the reset button?” He asked.
“Um. No,” I said.
He pushed the reset button, and the heater came back to life.
“That’ll be $85,” he said. I paid him.
This post is about realizing that I was sitting in cold water, and not doing anything to turn the heater back on.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
