Today, we're decompressing. Slowly, you have to be patient about it. If you come up too fast, your blood will boil.
As a distraction, my hoomins will take on another plumbing project. Let's hope this one doesn't go sideways. I can sense those Eisenhower-era pipes snickering, ghoulish copper ready to crack, hiss and drip water.
Last M*nd*y, Mr. Plumber repaired the leaky pipe in less than an hour. He used the jackhammer and the chisel only for a few minutes. It felt awful for a moment, but peace and quiet afterward felt amplified and more intense - a very strange sensation.
But today, no matter what happens, we shall loaf.
We'll keep you posted,
