Consequences of Tempting Fate

Oh, the fun continues. So we finally ordered, received, and installed the hospital track for the shower curtain in the never-ending bathroom remodel. A standard shower curtain is just a scoche too short, but we found some funky extra rings to extend it. I was excited during this final phase; M withheld judgment, because "something always happens." But this all went smoothly! We showered in our "master" bath, for the first time in nine months! (Aw, like a baby!) But then, sure enough the trend continued: as M tried to tighten down the showerhead connection, which was leaking everso slightly, he broke off the entire top of the showerhead arm. Water was shooting out like a bidet for a nine-foot woman. So no more showers in the "master" bath for a while.

The shower before the decapitation:


French fries cause cancer. Oh. My. God. World. Coming. To. End.

OH MY! But you had me GAFFAWing with a huge outburst at the bidet comment. And again about the fries. (I can laugh about the fries because I don't care for them. But dang! I probably had a bunch when I was 3-5 years old. Sigh.) Sorry to hear about the showerhead. Good luck with the fix.

Look out, you're the next victim of IAS/NADM! They also call it hubris in my country. ;)

Seriously, sorry to hear about the shower, what a bummer. As for the french fries....eh. Yummy things are always risky. Makes 'em yummier!
