His & Hers Blowtorches
In case you were wondering, the community property creme brulee torch doesn't have enough kick to melt the solder on a burst pipe (thanks to the California Freeze).
Sure, it sucks to have to turn off the water and do house repair, but I think E was secretly thrilled at the need for a full-strength plumbing torch. Me, I'm just happy that we've implicitly agreed to separate property ownership of the two torches. Mine: butane, for sugar. His: propane, for plumbing.
Ahhh... married life.
