And, I’m glad there are no pictures. You will all agree that this is TMI but it was so funny!
My husband an engineer . . one of those Georgia Tech/Clemson/Tulane engineers so he definitely has credentials but sometimes, he is just too much of an engineer for real life.
The irrigation system in my garden is PVC pipe and the sun is terrible for the exposed parts. We have to re-do it almost every year and we had planned to re-do it all this year with the garden expansion but we just never got around to it.
While at Tractor Supply the other day, I saw some nifty little sprinklers that sit atop T-posts so I got a couple. When Vince got home from work, I was out there working and asked him to come help me set up one of those sprinklers. It was quite easy and I could have done it myself but I didn’t realize that. One part of the PVC pipe was leaking a bit so Vince messed with it. I was saying “Be careful . . that stuff will break so easily right now.”
Another thing to remember . . we have well water and it’s ice cold coming from deep below ground. Vince still had on his work clothes, shoes, belt and all. He got the sprinkler all attached, turned it on and when he turned it on, the piece of PVC pipe that he had messed with blew out and we were both standing there getting an ice cold shower. He let out a string of words he learned from his Sicilian parents. I was laughing so hard and at my age, that can be very dangerous. I took off running to get out of the spray of cold water and right there, I had to stop and take care of business. Vince was still standing there getting wet and he said “What the heck are you doing?” What does it look like I’m doing? It’s either this or have an accident in my pants!
Thank goodness for living out in the country where no one can see or hear what goes on around here. Anyone who thinks we don’t enjoy life needs to come here and spend one day with us. Oh . . wait . . no one is every going to come here again after that story.
