I know this is an old post, but I haven't read this thread for a while.

So you won't get sick right away. Instead you will sit there for days, wondering when it's going to hit!

I'm sorry. I don't mean to make a joke out of this, but after reading some of the other threads this morning, everything is funny to me.

I love this forum.
I had to try to figure out what this was about, then I saw the "TTHM". Not sitting around for days wondering - wondering for years.

Ok, so I don't know everything. What is TTHM?

Chief, it's times like this that google is my friend - my very good friend.

Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) are a byproduct of chlorinating water that contains natural organics.

I didn't read the entire article, but just knowing that little bit of knowledge now makes me appropriately dangerous.

You really mucked up that quote.

We discussed TTHM earlier in the thread. But, since Carol had also mucked up the quote, I couldn't just click the little arrow next to the name and go to the quoted post, so I could seen it in context.

Doesn't anyone use the "Preview Post" button?

Okay, apologies to the Chief and to Carol. The forum seems to be mucking up the quotes.

You thought I made a mistake! Well, maybe I make one every 15 years or so. Oh, wait, that's every 15 seconds or so.

It's tax season, so of course my right wrist is acting up. I've put on the brace. Usually Stirling takes out the garbage, but with the broken rib, he can't carry anything heavier than a coffee cup. I couldn't carry all the garbage at once and was going to make two trips, but the temperature is dropping and the puddles are freezing over. It will just have to wait until Wednesday to go out. I'm not risking the icy walk again tonight.

I am sooooooo tired of struggling to open things. I just wish I had back all the time I've wasted trying to open the packaging of the thing I just bought. Curses on whoever contaminated the first item, leading to the hermetical sealing of any and everything since.
