I love my monkey water baths.
In case you don't know what monkey water is,
let me enlighten you.
Monkey water is water that is so hot you say "ooh ooh aah aah"
Just like a monkey.
Scratching arm pits is optional.
Why is this such important news?
Because, the week of Christmas my water heater died and no more monkey water baths for a few days.
My wash water was heated on the stove.
That was fun.
Good thing I have a big stock pot and several Dutch ovens.
Not enough to fill my ginormous clawfoot bathtub, but good enough to get me clean.
Santa Claus came in the form of my inlaws this year who paid a shitload for a better water heater than we could afford.
Propane water heaters cost more.
So Honeyman and father-in-law went and got it December 23rd and put it in the 26th.
Yay for hot water!
Due to the fact that our house is almost 100 years old and built oddly, it took forever to get it installed.
In the course of it all, fil broke the hot water line.
But, it's in and it works and I get my monkey water baths back.
OOOH OOOH, AAAH AAAH!
