Hey, the first 5 years of my married life we lived in an appartment in Europe where water didn't have enough pressure to reach the 10th until around 2am, and the lift power went off 5 days a week.
I got the perfectly toned legs(cough!...) I have today out of carrying 20 litre jerry cans of water up the 10th floor via never-ending stairs, twice a day... See, it's actually good for your health. And we didn't need no stinken hurricanes! Received on Fri Nov 02 2012 - 12:33:17 CET
