I saw a book on my sister’s bookshelf recently called Dare to Repair: A Do-it-Herself Guide to Fixing (Almost) Anything in the Home. I’m thinking I should invest in a copy. I just finished applying silicon sealer to our shower floor, and here are the tips I could have used:
1. Remove your wedding ring before you smear silicon all over your hands.
2. Find the paint thinner in the crawl space before you smear silicon all over your hands.
3. Change into a short-sleeved shirt, because tubes of silicon are apparently made for 200-pound men, and when you lose all grip strength half way through the project, you are going to want to lean on the tube with your elbow, which will not be easy to do without ruining your long-sleeved sweater. And you will have smeared silicon all over your hands.
Off to find a second dose of paint-thinner…
