So I need a man, that isn't so bad


As a follow up to my last post, I would just like to say that the sink was fixed and working great on Saturday. After posting the last blog, Bella called and having just read about my trials and tribulations...I kid....she invited me over to watch the Dark Knight. So, off I headed, leaving the counter piled high with tools and widgets.

I didn't get to watch the entire movie, don't worry I saw it in the theater, before I had to go pick up the man from work. When he got in the car, I was late picking him up because apparently at 3:45 pm on a Saturday everyone and their mother is on the road, I knew I had to broach the subject with some trepidation.

"So, honey? I kind of need your help when we get home, it doesn't have to be right when we get home, but it definitely has to be before we make dinner. So I went to the store and bought all the pieces I needed to replace the seals and inner things on the faucet and well...I can't get one of the pieces back on by myself. I don't want you to be alarmed when you walk in the door cause it's kindda a mess. All I need is for you to help me with one little thing then I can put it all back together again on my own...Trust me on this, I put it back together like 10 times already, and every time ended in failure cause my wingspan is to short."

I think the exact response I got was a slight "ok" mixed with a large tired sigh.

When we got home it worked out beautifully. Mission Accomplished.

I like being useful sometimes.

I've heard that most CEOs are men because they can reach two rungs at a time up the corporate ladder.
