I’ve been asked to follow up on what happened with the plumber. The reason I haven’t followed up before now is because nothing happened with the plumber.
He did indeed come over with steaks and wine. It was a nice benign evening. (Of course, what else am I going to say with bazillions of my family, friends and strangers reading this?). He actually came over a couple of nights later…for a second date. During this date, I found out, he’s 37 and still married. Game over.
It didn’t matter. He didn’t call again anyway and the “he’s just not that into me” feeling was definitely mutual…especially given the circumstances.
Now I have a cleanout that needs to be upgraded, my drains are working fine and I actually fixed the leak in the kids’ bathroom with the help of a friend. I actually now know what to do the next time the problem occurs. The cleanout can wait till next summer. I plan to work on the yard then anyway.
And, I still think the plumber thing was funny…
