What Would Bob Vila Do?

Posted on February 4, 2009 by under Life.    


Brian and I went to Home Depot today to pick up some drywall patching supplies. Because I am a nerd, I picked up a copy of their Home Improvement 1-2-3 book. I will take any excuse to add to my growing book collection. Oh, and this one comes with a bonus DVD! LOL.

Incidentally, the back of the book says it costs $19.97 but came out to only $14 and change when Brian rang it up. They must have been having some kind of book sale. I was so excited. Brian wondered what I was so happy about. I explained to him that I was willing to pay $20 for my book and it actually cost $5 less than I expected. I was happy that I saved money. Yeah, I know. I’m pretty easy to please.

BRIAN: You better use that book.

ME: I’m going to use to tell you how you’re supposed to do it!

We both laughed at that because he knows it’s true. I am going to be such a pain with my new book.

A few weeks ago, the day after the final day of our plumbing work, Brian and I actually had the following conversation in the bathroom while getting ready for work one morning.

“Are you sure you will be able to patch all the holes?” I asked him.

“Yes. Dad and I have patched many walls when we lived in the old house in Deerfield,” he assured me and then proceeded to tell me how he would go about patching the many holes that the plumber left.

“That’s not how Bob Vila would do it,” I blurted. My mouth works faster than my brain sometimes.

“I’m going to tell dad you said that,” he threatened. We both laughed and joked about getting WWBVD t-shirts made.
