There is a joke in my house that I am “Mr. Fix-it.” I have a talent for taking something apart and not knowing how to put it together again, or putting it together and it working worse than before….or not at all. I call it a “gift.” LOL
If you have this gift, you will be smart to remember that a call to the plumber or electrician is much cheaper and a lot less frustrating in the end.
I learned a long time ago what my limitations were. I just am not mechanically minded. I don’t do plumbing, electrical work, or handle large equipment. I really tested fate when I used a chain saw to chop up some tree limbs we cut down. Thank God I still have all MY limbs.
I love Duct Tape and WD40. They are two multipurpose products that just beg to be tried for something you need bound together or loosened apart. One binds, one loosens. How simple is that? Depending on what state you are from, you just might be using Duct Tape for about everything from holding on your bumper to taping your commode in place.
Now personally, that is where I draw the line. I am not going to have tape on my bumper or my commode, I won’t wear a costume of duct tape, and I won’t be wrapping gifts with it.
Many years ago I bought my parents an expensive clock from Germany for their home. It finally quit running, so my dad got the WD40 out and doused the insides of the clock. I was MORTIFIED that he would do that. I would have taken it to a clock store and had someone look at it to see what was wrong, but you know what? It worked. All I could do was laugh about it after the fact.
I have since used the tape to hold more than a few things that were in need of repair, and the WD40 is simply amazing at what it will loosen. I found out it even takes off the tar that gets on my car when going over recently repaired roads. How cool is that?
I also found out that there are Duct Tape and WD40 in Heaven. Matthew 18:18 says:
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
You gotta love that! Even God uses Duct Tape and WD40! LOL.
P.S. IMPORTANT NOTE: You are not supposed to put WD40 on your wife.
1st Corinthians 7:27 says:
“Are you bound to a wife? Do not seek to be loosed.” Apparently the Duct Tape is OK.
If she balks at the tape, don’t call me. Take it up with God.
