A friend in Texas said the oil company had put a new pump motor on the well nearest her house. The new motor had a different sound than she was accustomed to, and was keeping her awake at night.
I asked, "How many wells do you have?"
"Five," she replied.
I could sleep soundly with one well. I think. I've never had any, so I really don't know.
(Asking someone how many wells she has is not a Texas thing to do, but we knew each other well enough it wasn't bad manners.)
