I think I’m coming around on the issue of owning home improvement tools. I still get sick when I have to go to Lowe’s, but I’m starting to see the value of having at least the basics for when the need to fix something arises.
I went to my friend’s house on Saturday. We thought we were all set with our wine and beer, but I began to freak out a little when he started looking for the bottle opener and couldn’t find it. Look, I might not have a super cool wireless drill in my house to fix the curtain rods onto the wall, but I have awesome neighbors that will do it for me and two openers for the bottles of wine.
Before the freaking out evolved into a full on breakdown, my friend was like, relax. He walked into the storage closet, got a long screw, a screwdriver, and the hammer. Two minutes later we were out in the patio having our drinks.
I didn’t have a chance this weekend to run to the store, but a trip to the Home Depot is, definitely, on the very near future. Like I always say, better safe than sorry.
