On plumbing, appreciation, and trying something new

Posted by Didi Gorman on

I’ve recently taken an interest in plumbing.

Don’t ask me why, but I find all those wrenches, hammers, and drills simply fascinating. And there are so many other pieces of equipment I don’t even know how to name!

So when we needed some plumbing done in the basement, I happily volunteered to join in. I’m not entirely sure if my help was indeed helpful or more of a nuisance, but who cares? I had a great time drilling, unscrewing, plugging, and sorting through bolts and nails.

You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this.

Well, this experience has taught me a few things.

  1. Hats off to those who are skilled in this type of trade. It’s not an easy job and it gives a totally new meaning to the expression working up a sweat.
  2. I enjoyed trying out something that I don’t usually do. And it demystified it, too. In other words, I gained knowledge. Worth it just for that.
  3. I learned to appreciate the comfort of my own work as a writer. True, writing has its own challenges, but they are very different than those of a handyperson and rarely involve physical discomfort.

It’s great we all have different talents and skills, I find.

This post is dedicated to anyone who is curious to try something new and learn from other people. We learn a lot about ourselves this way.
