Birdy was baking and cleaning with care, in hopes that visitors soon be there.
When at my work desk, my phone it did clatter, then I came home to see what was the matter.
The house smelt of gingerbread, sugar, & spice, betraying that things were anything but nice.
When, what to my wondering eyes should see, but a kitchen faucet nearly broken in three.
With the plastic broken, sheared off without care, I knew in a moment there was no hope for repair.
Isle 1, isle 2, isles 3, 4, 5, 6… this hardware store I had to nix.
To the top of River, and Highway 82 we tore, to our nearest Ace Hardware store.
I heard them remark, as I left their sight, “It looks like he’ll have a long night…”
Yep, that was fun. On the bright side I have a new kitchen faucet (made of metal) with the addition of a sprayer, just in time for Christmas!
