So we have really, really hard water in Kalamazoo. I mean this stuff comes out and clinks against the sink. It's awful

So we, of course, installed a water softener right after we moved in. The thing broke a few weeks back and I've been playing with Culligan ever since. "We'll be there at 9:30," this translates to we'll call at about 10:30 and see if you're there. Since my wife and I both work, this type of 'scheduling' makes things tricky.

Anyway, my skin has been not handling the water very well. Last night I was sitting and watching the Mythbusters and I though 'Wow, my knuckles sure feel weird.' I look down and watch the skin just randomly start splitting open. Without doing anything I suddenly had bloody knuckles from about 8 little splits.

The moral of this story is F Kalamazoo water and a great big F-U for Culligan. The friggin water is orange and smells like car exhaust!!! That's not right.

Move to Brooklyn. We have some of the cleanest tap water in the country. Seriously.

Lotion can help. Also, don't soap.

That's why every morning I coat myself in a thick layer of lotion rather than take a shower.
