"Hi, Honey. How did that job go?" said I, as Steven came home from caulking the tub at our neighbor's house. To be fair, he was supposed to replace one of their windows, too. He had decided to "cut loose" from that job because it was cold and late in the day.
"Oh, pretty good. Almost done." Turns out, he had enough time to get it started, and almost finished, this afternoon.
"Great. Some lady called."
"Really?" He has been hoping for another little job. Just enough to keep him busy.
"Yes. She wants you to fix the ceiling in her kitchen. It's a bit funky and she is sick of it."
He gave me a grin and pointed at me and at our kitchen ceiling.
So what if I was a bit resentful of our neighbors? I mean, caulk their tub? Really? Our kitchen ceiling has been FUNKY for years, at least ten. I am truly sick of it.
"So, do you think we can get the game on the radio?" I am talking, of course, about Game 6 of the World Series. The Sox can clinch it tonight. We listened to Monday's game on SiriusXM in the car the way home from the airport.
We tried to tune in the Albany Fox Sports AM radio but all we got was static.
"There is a way that we can stream Sirius radio on line."
"How do we do that?"
"I don't know, I am trying to figure it out." I pulled up the Sirius web page. It took about thirty minutes. First I had to find the radio ID in the car. Then I had to log in with it and then create an account on line with yet another username and password. Then I had to add internet radio to the account. They timed me out and we had to start all over. Finally, we made it to the all important billing page.
"Are you excited, honey?"
"Oh yes, I am ecstatic."
"So, does that mean I can get my kitchen ceiling fixed?"
"Oh, yes, for sure, honey."
"Oh good. I was thinking, maybe we should get a new light, too."
