The Plumber is Cracked

Remember this post when I showed the demolition of my bathroom and said it would look that way and worse for some time to come?  Yeah, that was the beginning of January.  It's now April and still not done.  I'm getting a wee tad desperate here.  I think the project is beginning to affect Mr. Lime's brain though.  Allow me to share.

I mentioned on Facebook a couple nights ago that I thought he may be spending too much time alone with pipes because I overheard him speaking to fixtures and pipes saying, "Come on, baby!  Oh yeah!  You're a dream come true!"  I thought if I dabbed some pipe dope behind my ears it may elicit some passionate encouragement directed at me.

We selected a shower, vanity, toilet, and tile and Mr. Lime has installed the shower.  Since the medicine cabinet just came in he said we needed to go get a light fixture and I wanted to get some paint chips to coordinate with a tile sample.  On the way to the store he complained the vanity being made in China, as were many other bathroom components.  I held up the porcelain tile square remaking that it had been made in USA.  I thought about it a moment and added that I thought porcelain may have been invented in China. 

Mr. Lime huffed, "The Chinese invented EVERYTHING....well...except for Velcro.  The aliens gave us that."

I asked, "Stonehenge, crop circles, and Velcro, huh?  All the works of extraterrestrials?"

He responded, "Definitely."

There ya have it, folks.  I thought my sanity was at stake in this whole process but it's clear his cheese has already slipped off his cracker.

I thought better of asking if Bigfoot worked in carpentry and the Loch Ness Monster was in HVAC.

Oh I know what never ending renovations are like. Am there. Doing that.

Don't worry about Mr. Lime and the pipes. I think it was all a dream. Yeah, you just had a pipe dream. ;)

Remodeling projects are always way more time-consuming and expensive than you anticipate.

And while the Swiss may be so orderly they appear alien, it was actually a human from that country who invented Velcro. :-)

I like this: "his cheese has already slipped off his cracker."

That's why they call it 'pipe dope'. . .

Projects always take longer than anticipated ...or we want ...because nobody ever takes into account the drying time.

If he's living in a world that allows him to remain functional as Bathroom Remodeler, don't tip that shaky boat. Just keep paddling along 'til you get to shore, and only then GIVE HIM A GOOD SHAKE.

I love your Mr. Lime. He makes me smile. And so do you.

"... his cheese has already slipped off his cracker."

If he had used Cheese Whiz, that wouldn't have happened. As a bonus, it can also be used in place of Spackle (if you don't mind orange walls.)
