My Handy Husband
You know, I think that my own lack of ability to fix mechanical things make me appreciate my husband even more. He doesn’t think that it is a big deal when he installs a new toilet, hooks up all kinds of electronics, and fixes DVD players. And, I don’t think that it is false modesty on his part. He really thinks that anyone could fix all of the stuff that he knows how to fix. The reason for this is that he just has a vast reservoir of mechanical knowledge and know-how that he can’t even recognize because it is a part of him. But, I think that it is a very big deal. Last night, he put a new motor in our DVD player. This is major because we will have no drama from the children today concerning a non-working player *and* we will not have to find the money to buy a new one.
Handy husbands reduce stress and reduce expenditures, too. I highly recommend having one around. 🙂
