We live in a small village surrounded by irresistible temptations. Our internet is provided through an antenna attached to our home.
It works great as long you don't touch NOTHING... NOTHING is in capital letters just as a reminder to ME!
So last week I washed the side of our home where the antenna is. When the technician had installed the antenna, he had left some cables hanging on the side of our home and it was driving me nuts, well, more precisely it was driving me nuttier.
So when I washed the siding, I had the step ladder out, the sun was shinning on my thin scalp and an idea in this overheated brain of mine came to. When I have an idea I take it seriously, I never know when the next one will come.
The idea was to get a screwdriver, unscrew 3 bolts, push the cable underneath the siding and screw back the 3 bolts, Voilà, internet cable out of my sight, and I could reclaim some needed sanity...
These are things I used to do as part of my job a while back, but now with the limited movements in my right shoulder (yes, I’m milking that one to the max), I was rushing the job. I screwed the screw IN the cable, didn't even noticed.
By now you must wonder why I'm talking about this on a health blog, this is a public advice message folks, if it's working DON'T TOUCH IT! I would appreciate it if from time to time you smart people remind me of it; I'm sure I'll forget as soon as this post is published.Hey, how are you all doing? Now that I have the Internet back I have started to read some posts but have not commented yet. I'm trying to keep a low profile for now, I'm sure the shame will just go away, won’t it?
Look at that clean antenna!
The technician just left, do you see the cable by the screw, it's going to drive me nut but I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT, I WILL NOT TOUCH IT... today!
