If you could have one--and only one--wish granted in the next five minutes, what would you wish? How do you think it would improve your life?
Last weekend we had to buy a new toilet. It was supposed to be installed today. The guy took the old one out, realized the something-or-other flange was broken, which is why our old one was leaking, I guess, and said he couldn't install it until a plumber came out to fix the flange first. So I called our plumber, and he will come tomorrow between 12 and 5, which means I'm stuck at home all day like I was today. Then I called the installer back, and he can't come until between 12 and 4 on Thursday, which means I'm stuck at home all day Thursday.
So it may not be a million dollars or omnipotence or world peace, but my wish in the next five minutes would be for our damn toilet to be installed.
This is the kind of thing that becomes your priority when you're a homeowner.
At least I got some housework and laundry done today. Maybe tomorrow I'll try to write.
