So, I spent the weekend with Boyfriend in his house at Seaside Town. He was planning on periodically renting out the vacation home over the summer, but someone contacted him about renting over Thanksgiving. He said sure, but there was a crap ton of stuff we had to do to get the house ready. It was a Home Improvement Weekend!
Boyfriend is very handy. I, in fact, am not. So through trial and error, I’ve come up with this uber helpful list of dos and don’t for helping one’s boyfriend make home repairs.
DO put things together.
Boyfriend bought this shelving unit that consisted of putting tubes in holes and sticking the shelves on top. No screws, no nails. Like playing with large tinker toys. I ROCKED that assembly.
|I made those.|
DON’T pretend to violate Boyfriend as he’s working on the garbage disposal under the kitchen sink. He will not appreciate it. No matter how sexy he looks.
|*singing* that's the way uh huh uh huh I liiiike it uh huh uh huh|
DO be morally supportive when Boyfriend must make 4th trip to Lowes. He WILL be cranky and/or disgruntled.
|I recommend pom poms.|
If Boyfriend starts yelling at his podcast about taxes while he’s already cursing at the garbage disposal, DON’T interrupt. It probably won’t end well for you.
If Boyfriend is trying to figure out which circuit breaker switch controls the electricity in a room and asks you to let him know when the lights go out, DO tell him the truth. Mild electrocution is never funny.
Lastly, DON’T be distracted by taking pictures of Allie doing filthy things to his bird statues. Remember, you’re here to help Boyfriend!
(Don’t worry guys, you’ll get an update on her shenanigans soon).
