normally, i’d joke about mercury being in retrograde and that it’s to blame for miscommunication and expectations being unmet and general malaise… but it’s not. even if it were in retrograde, it would be silly to blame a planet. it’s more likely just human behavior.
i think i’m just antsy…
also, here’s photographic evidence of the before-kitchen-fix:
after a trip to menards, where the guy wasn’t quite listening to me when i showed him the broken plastic piece that i intended to replace, and a visit the following day to ace hardware, where the two guys working practically tripped over themselves to help me, i finally ended up with two 3/8ths butterfly nuts with which to secure the faucet.
