And who knew that pouring some Plumber's Aid down the drain wouldn't do a thing?
And who knew that trying to loosen the plastic pipes under the sink would just cause it to leak?
And who knew that pouring industrial strength drain cleaner down the pipes would burn holes in the tubing, only making the leak much worse?
All's well that ends well. We called in our repairman neighbor. The sink was unclogged and the pipes replaced.
And I managed to get the dirty laundry drawer back into place when the repairman couldn't figure out how to do it!
I've grown a beard three times in my life. The first was during my long-haired teenage years, and the second was when my father died nearly seven years ago. For the record, I do not enjoy having wiry, scratchy, unruly hair growing on my face.
My wife has promised to list in her will that if she dies before me, I would not be required to grow a beard as a sign of mourning.
(For those who don't understand why I grew a beard for 30 days, please read "The Comfort of Jewish Mourning Customs").
