To Be A Man

I realised today, while trying to change a washer on a tap in the backyard, that as a man, I've learnt nothing about finesse, tools, or craft. All I know is that if I have a hammer and bash something, eventually, it will move, and one way or the other, the problem will be solved.

Well, maybe not.

At any rate, long story short, the tap is no longer leaking.

when I was a kid I knew how to change washers and fix blown fuses with copper wire. As a 40-something, I'm completely useless.

yeah, i knew how to do it with copper wire too. apparently that's a huge health hazard now, cause of fires and such that it can cause (on the fuses, that is)
