The Streets

The Streets

  1. Volunteered to paint the downstairs bathroom
  2. Found out at the last minute that painting a bathroom involves removing the tank from the toilet so you can paint behind it
  3. Silently observed that this type of oversight is the reason I’m not usually trusted with tasks like these
  4. Removed the tank from the toilet
  5. Painted the bathroom
  6. Went to Home Depot to get a kit containing parts you’re supposed to replace each time you remove the tank
  7. Reinstalled the tank
  8. Flushed the toilet
  9. Cleaned up the resulting flood
  10. Went to bed
  11. Woke up
  12. Went to Home Depot to get a different kit containing parts you’re supposed to replace each time you remove the tank
  13. Reinstalled the tank
  14. Broke something plastic
  15. Went back to Home Depot to replace the broken plastic thing
  16. Watched as the door was locked for the night
  17. Asked iPhone to find a Lowe’s that was open an extra hour
  18. Drove 20 minutes to Extra-Hour Lowe’s, only to learn that E-H Lowe’s was not, in fact, open an extra hour
  19. Questioned entire belief structure and will to live
  20. Went to bed
  21. Woke up
  22. Gave the broken plastic thing to Mrs. YHT, who could get to Home Depot before I could
  23. Retrieved an unbroken plastic thing from Mrs YHT
  24. Reinstalled the tank
  25. Flushed the toilet
  26. Waited
  27. Flushed the toilet again
  28. Waited
  29. Flushed the toilet a third time
  30. Waited, admiring the nice new color of the walls…

  1. 31. Smile smugly to yourself every time you go to someone else’s bathroom and you notice they didn’t paint behind the tank. Well done!

    I love this! I love home repair in the same way I love looking for good music.
    There is no such thing as a “sure thing”.
