Dreaming …

“Thanks for pushing me to do the house,” said husband.

“That was like, in February,” said wife.

“No—two or three years ago,” said husband.

“Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away …” said wife, paraphrasing the opening crawl to the Star Wars movies.

“You said the magic words!” chimed in daughter.

We went swimming, and didn’t know what was happening with the house today—the usual. We came home to a larger wreck, but with new light fixtures installed! The original builders installed some bathroom light fixtures in drywall. How did this pass code? We wondered, not wanting to know the answer. Another neighbor is building a new garage, and workers used a tall crane to place the roof trusses; resisting the urge to compare mess with mess.

Posted this note in the shower:
Dear Plumber: Please leave as much head room as possible under the shower head (for a six-foot tall person). Thanks.


Someone read the note!
