RE: Hosing up without the lights on
I keep a small portable lantern next to my machine. Bought it for emergencies if we were to lose power. It has a very low setting on it that is not bright enough to disturb my husband but gives me enough light to see while I am getting my mask on. I don't use it every night but it has been handy sometimes.

You just had to bring practicality into it, didn't you?

But of course I did Smile I didn't want to risk getting wine in my humidifier. It stains!

I guess we are going to be forced to expand the new thread to, "What do you put in your humidifier vinegar, wine, or bourbon?"

The answer is still the same.

Thanks for the laugh people.
It is nice to know we are not alone in doing the silly things, we usually don't admit to.

RE: Hosing up without the lights on
That's just the tip for me, I could keep an audience laughing for an entire evening with some of the dumb things/stories I have. Such as the time I found out I was allergic to grass, the hard way. But you need to come over for a dinner party and bring a nice single malt scotch. You'll get a great feed and entertainment. :-)
