    When I was a lad, there was a concrete pad outside my Grandparents Cain house with a pump mounted on it. From time to time, out of boredom, I would pump the handle. Nothing ever happened. Then one day, when it had rained the night before and the old leather seals had swollen enough, it worked! I asked my grandparents if it was safe to drink the water, and was told emphatically “No!” The next time we visited the pump was gone and the hole sealed.

    Geez, am I old.Report
