My child had been planning an outdoor BBQ for her daughter’s eighteenth anniversary.
She had the plans made and all the decorations and food bought, nearly 2 weeks ahead of time.
There was to be forty people at the BBQ. When our wife and I arrived, it surprised us the people I was with and I were the only people there. I thought maybe I had gotten the wrong date, or I didn’t earn the news that the celebration was off. My child was in tears when she came outside. She told myself and others they had called the BBQ off, however she didn’t call us because she still wanted us here. My wife asked her what had happened. She wanted to guess what was broken and if she should go back house and get some tools. She started to cry and took us into the house. There was water everywhere. The boiler water tank had sprung a leak. Since the boiler was on the main floor, right by the bedroom, the water was running under the door and out into the house. Her wife came out of the boiler room and she was just about in tears. There were space gas furnaces everywhere, hoping to keep the water from settling into the flooring.They were trying to keep the wood floors from warping. The air conditioner was running on high, because of the heat in the house from the space heaters. My child and I took our granddaughter out for a elegant breakfast, while the women got the boiler repaired. By the time the people I was with and I got home, they fixed the boiler water tank, the space gas furnaces were gone, and they had cleaned up the mess. They moved the anniversary BBQ to the following weekend.
