Never start a plumbing project at 6:00 P.M. on a Sunday evening, instead go on a 20 to 30 mile ride with friends (I turned them down for plumbing).
All plumbing supply/hardware stores are closed after 6:00 P.M. in Vermillion.
Washing dishes in the bath-tub sucks. Ok, the Mrs. didn't use the tub but the laundry room sink isn't much better.
Always have a full 1/2 gallon of some sort of whiskey available to celebrate failed projects(screwed this up to).
So, I've now screwed up 2 rides as I will be fixing tomorrow, after work, instead of riding.
