That summer, I worked in a factory that made water heaters (Honeywell). It was really hard work. I was on the assembly line wrapping coils around something. I had blisters on my hands, and my whole body smelled like diesel oil. Even after I took a shower, the smell was still in my nose and the taste was still in my mouth. Luckily, I was "promoted" to the clean room where we inspected the coils for defects. It was air-conditioned, and we had to wear special white, clean overalls. Much better!
