Wonky's Land of Nonsensical Musings

Month: August 2020

TWTW August 3rd through the 9th: Plumbers Gain Respect.

My mom’s kitchen faucet leaked. After a long search, she had bought one she liked. I agreed to put it in. I had installed a couple of other faucets. How hard could it be?

I climbed under the sink. I had never seen a faucet installed like this. I searched the internet. I banged and unbolted. I yanked on things. I hit my head, and cut up my hands. Icky smelling water dripped on me. Eventually, I pulled the old faucet out and started putting in the new one. It went much easily until I got to needing to connect the supply lines. The fittings were completely different sizes. Several trips to Home Depot and Menard’s ensued. I finally had the right fittings and attached everything. Time to turn on the water. Things leaked. I tried to tighten things up and it still leaked. Frustrated, at this point I gave up.

My uncle realized the problem was that I hadn’t put any plumbers tape on the fittings. He had some and finished up my job.

I no longer will complain when I see how much a plumber makes an hour.

TWTW July 27th through August 2nd: A Chipmunk Implores The Food Giant

I looked out at the patio where I feed the chipmunk. The patio door was open since it was a nice day. What do I see? The Chipmunk has climbed up the screen and is frantically looking into the room. I hadn’t fed him the day before. I could sense the question: Food giant where is the food. I fed him.

A few days later, after I had fed him, the chipmunk climbed onto the screen as I was standing there. It seemed he wanted to say think you to the food giant. He still runs away if I try to come out. I can understand the logic. Food giant is benevolent and give me food, but food giant is also giant and could squish me.
