…light my fire
Once again, my water heater’s pilot has self-extinguished. It’s a safety mechanism for the kind of water heater that I have which is designed to prevent the buildup of lint from igniting.
Mine must be hyper-sensitive for the tiniest amount of lint will cause it to extinguish the fire. And some unknown amount of time later, I get the joy of taking an ice-cold shower. “Oh, Come ON!” I shout. Then I head down to the garage and light my fire AGAIN.
