What the hell?

So the sink broke overnight.  (I tried to think of a good opening statement/intro but couldn't so we are starting this blog essentially mid conversation.)  Everything else that has a pipe connected worked-every toilet, shower, sink, washer/dryer, etc. except for 1 sink upstairs.  I got on the computer and tried to trouble shoot what the hell happened from yesterday to today.  

Here's what happened for about 45 minutes:

Step 1: Google something online
Step 2: Talk to myself
Step 3: Dig in toolbox
Step 4: Schlep up the stairs
Step 5: Fiddle with said idea from online
Step 6: Schlep down the stairs
Step 7: Look at roommate and say "Nope."

Repeat steps at least 7 times.

After about 45 minutes she finally cracked.  I looked over at her and she is just shaking on the couch trying not to laugh-cuz I'm SOOOO not in the mood.  Here is the conversation that followed.

Me: What?
Roommate: (laughing) Nothing.
Me: Seriously, what?
Roommate: (still laughing)  Nothing.  It's...it's just...your gayness is showing.  Just call someone and get it over with.
Me: (looking down at my shirt and laughing) Damn...my gayness is showing.  And hell no I'm not calling someone.  I will figure this out.

Another 2 hours later the sink is working and no, I didn't call anyone.  Unfortunately as my mother pointed out-my day was shot to shit because I'm stubborn.  Whatever.  I fixed the damn sink.

LMAO!!! That was me about 3 months ago. But I did call someone.... my dad!! After taking pictures on my phone of everything I took apart and sending them to him, he told me the tools I needed to buy and I went to work. It took a couple hours and most of the day, BUT I did it!! Plus it got me out of doing dishes for awhile! HELL YEA I'M A HOMO!!!

I few months ago, I showed my gayness when I changed the headlight to my car all by my self. Well, I did have the laptop nearby. Repairs aren't cheap!

I blame the economy.
