My brother, John, came down (from the frozen northlands of WA) for a week-long visit. It has been very nice. Before he got here, he suggested a few things we three (sister, brother, me) might do, plus he said he’d help me out with anything I might need to do at the new house. And so, I made a little list.
Now, my brother is a very
handy guy. He builds beautiful furniture, cabinets, decorative boxes, little bitty collector cars – an artist in wood. He also has a firm knowledge of plumbing, electricity, general home repairs, and so forth.
Last time I was in the frozen northlands of WA, for Christmas, he gave me a special bathroom faucet. It is very cool.
And, while he was here, he’d put it in for me.
This was, I believe, a job he thought would take an hour or two.
Not the case.
Because, as it turns out, nothing in this house is a standard size. Nothing. Nada. Zero. Zip.
Anyway, I started with a bathroom faucet that looked like this
And, after a day and a half, 837 trips to every hardware type store in a 30-mile radius, an order to Amazon, a buncha muttering and stomping out the door, a variety of curse words (my guess is the builder of this little house no longer has ears – they’ve burned off), I now have a faucet that looks like this
A DRAGON IN THE BATHROOM!!
