You know how there are some things you just take for granted. For instance when you flip a switch the light goes on or it goes off. You don’t wonder about it, you don’t give it a thought.
You have a wide variety of choices on your TV remote. Among these are turning on the power, selecting a channel and controlling the volume. I’m pretty certain that you are not in awe each time you select an option and it works.
When you turn the knob on the stove you get a flame.
Your refrigerator keeps your food cold and safe. It just does.
Your washer washes and your dryer dries.
You get the picture .
|The washer and dryer I wish I had.|
So a few weeks ago when I went to turn on the faucet, and the top fell off, well I didn’t expect that. Ross kind of jury rigged it so the faucet works, but we knew, after 12 years, it was time for a new one.
The plumber came today with pictures of faucets that he thought might work in our existing sink configuration.
Then I said, "Well, that’s not really true. I, of course, can see the subtle differences. But I am not that fussy.” You pick.”
We both agreed to eliminate number three. And then we decided that number two wasn’t the right one.
So now it was between one and four.
As it turned out I am a little more fussy than I thought.
When Ross said that it didn’t really matter to him, but he thought number four was kind of the right one.
I said, “um…no.” It has to be number one.
I wonder if the faucet is going to look too new for our old sink.
