Have I Worked Out Too Much?

I guess all of those personal training sessions with Yoda paid off. When Lady Jaye got home from work tonight, I tried to make us a pot of tea. I held the tea kettle in one hand, and turned on the kitchen faucet with the other. I pulled the spigot towards me, and all of a sudden SNAP it broke off in my hand!! I batted the faucet off, but a jet of water managed to soak our kitchen wall ten feet away in the split-second while it was on. Part of the stream glanced off of my Herculean bicep and splashed over fuck-all, all the way to our dogs’ dishes.

Check these pictures out. The faucet had a retractable hose-thingy. There was a plastic piece that gave way, fucking thing. The faucet was less than two years old.

We’re going to Lowe’s tomorrow to buy a new faucet, you can bet your ass I’m not getting one with an extendable hose or one from this manufacturer again. Maybe something in SOLID STEEL this time?

    Do they make faucets out of adamantium? You may need one of these…

    Well, Price Pfister is going to replace the head, but it’s going to take 3 – 7 business days for it to get here.

    I wish I had stockpiled water for the apocalypse 🙁
