when the oil delivery company screws up and doesn’t deliver the oil and when you no longer have heat or hot water in the house, and when the temperature inside is 52 degrees and you need to get clean before you go to work, simply fill four of your biggest pots with water and bring them to a boil on the stovetop. Carefully carry them into the bathroom and pour them into the tub. Add enough freezing cold water until the temperature is tolerable. This should be enough water for a bit of a quickie bath. Move quickly and don’t linger.
***Do not remove your bathrobe until the water temperature is just right.
