Our water heater broke.
Ironically, we happen to be broke too.
Ideally, only one of us would be broke at a time.
Alas, twe're both broke at the same time.
In an effort to stay positive and not stress-out and save our hairlines from receding anymore than they already have, I had a conversation with Tony that went along these lines:
Me: "Hey, you know what? Our anniversary is coming up next month. We could count the water heater as our gift to each other."
Tony: "Yeah. Sure, OK."
Me: "This is actually kind of perfect because, we're so broke, we probably wouldn't have gotten ourselves an anniversary gift this year!"
Me: "We've never spent so much on an anniversary gift before! Wow. Fifteen hundred dollars."
Me: "Quite the splurge, but sometimes you gotta go all out."
Me: "Happy anniversary."
Tony: "I'll try to pick up another shift next week."
Anyway, it's not so bad, spending all that money you don't even have on a water heater when it's actually an anniversary gift.
