Home "Improvement"

Hint: If you don't know how to do something, then trying to learn while doing it for the first time isn't a good idea. IKEA furniture is about as far as I will venture into such projects. But my wife brought home a sink and vanity yesterday. Neither she nor I have any experience with such things. I said so. She insisted it was easy. Why? Because the guy at Lowe's said it was. Uh-huh. I'll be sure to tell him next time I see him how easy it is to write zombie novels, and he should quit his job and go do that. She got as far as turning the water off at the main valve, and disassembling the old sink. And now we have the water off, and no way to turn it back on, since I can't get the fitting for the new sink to thread on to the old pipe. No water. No coffee. I pissed on the bushes late last night when it was dark, but now that the sun is up, that's not looking like such a good option.

Yes, all her projects like this should be labelled Triumph of the Will, because that's the only thing she goes into the project with - the idea that if you WILL something to be so - "I WILL put this sink together!" - then it must necessarily BE so.
