Just kidding. No bathroom photos yet, and--no joke--we hereby begin day number six sans toilet. This post exists for two reasons. First, to share a photo of my favorite plumber at the hardware store (they've got a great bathroom!).
Hardware stores (big and small) smell so good. And they remind me of high school too, since my best friend's family owned the town hardware store and I spent many an after-school afternoon using the weird bathroom in the basement there, and coveting the bins of black O rings (like the ones Madonna wore as bracelets).
And secondly, I am using this post to experiment with bringing capital letters back into my life. I've been thinking about the grammatical/style/font things that drive me crazy, and the fact that there are undoubtedly persnickety people out there who would never even consider reading my blog because it is (typically) written in such a fey style, no capital letters and all. So. We shall see.
