Willy Street closed due to gas leak

Postby Henry Vilas » Tue Nov 12, 2013 3:49 pm

News reports say that a construction worker accidentially cut a natural gas pipe in the 1200 block of Willy St. and traffic is being diverted away from four blocks of the street.

Anyone know if the street has been reopened, as the Vilas clan is planning to have dinner on Willy this evening?

It's open now.

Just before they closed the street, it was so stinky I just got outta there. I am relieved nothing blew up.

Wow, how far away did you smell it from?

Did you know that natural gas has no natural odor? An artificial odor is added to help aid in the detection of leaks.

I dare somebody to write a letter to the Co-op newsletter demanding that they switch to all-natural, organic natural gas.

This brings to mind the Friends episode where Ross Can't Flirt:

    Caitlin: (from outside) Pizza!

    Ross: (running to the door) Oh, mine! Mine! Mine! (to everyone) Okay, here goes. Prepare yourselves for some Class A flirting.

    Chandler: Okay, hold on. (Pauses as he readies himself.) Okay. (Walks away.)

    Rachel: Honey, you have nothing to prove. And if you really like this girl, I don't flirting is the right thing to… (Ross interrupts and shushes her.)

    Ross: You'll see. Okay. (Readies himself.) Oh, what's-what's her name?

    All: Caitlin!

    Grandma Tribbiani: Caitlin!

    Ross: (He opens the door while faking a laugh.) Hey! Oh, we-we can't keep eating like this. (Monica turns her head in shame.)

    Caitlin: It's uh, $12.50.

    Ross: Okay, (gets the money) so, do you make the pizzas in one of those uh, wood-burning ovens?

    Caitlin: No actually umm, I think that they're umm, gas.

    Ross: Gas? Wow! Intense.

    Chandler: (To Monica) If this is the way all the Gellers flirt, we don't have a problem.

    Ross: (to Caitlin) Hey uh, y'know that smell gas has?

    Caitlin: (wanting more than anything to get the money and leave this horrible, horrible place) Yeah.

    Ross: They put that in.

    Caitlin: What?!

    Ross: The gas is odorless, but they add the smell so you know when there's a leak.

    Caitlin: (getting more desperate to leave) Well okay!

    Ross: A lot of other gas smells…

    Chandler: Oh the humanity.

    Ross: Meth-methane smells…

    Caitlin: Y'know what umm, actually I, I really, I should go.

    Ross: Oh but I-I-I haven't paid you yet!

    Caitlin: Y'know what? That's okay, you guys have ordered so many that this one is on me! (Runs for her life.)

    (Ross closes the door slowly.)

    Ross: (To All) Was I talking to her about gas?

    Chandler: More so than anything else.

kurt_w ... thank you for showing me that there IS something worse in this world than watching an episode of Friends: reading one.
