"Cat, what do you mean by calling an electrician? I’m sure I can fix the washing machine."
"Jared, sweety, we’re supposed to go to the summer festival today and I want it fixed before we go."
"I could do it after breakfast."
Truth be told, the real reason that I don’t want Jared to try and fix the washing machine is that he’s so clumsy. I’ve seen him trip over his own feet. Combine that with water everywhere and trying to fix something electric and - well, it just seems like a really bad idea to have him fix it. Still, I can’t tell him that, it might hurt his feelings.
"Look, she promised she’d be right over. It will be done and fixed soon. She also guaranteed her price and we won’t have to worry."
It was a good move. She came and finished the job while we were just finishing breakfast.
"See, honey? Now we can go straight to festival."
"I don’t think so."
"Well, clothes would be a good start, yes?"
My darling husband did have a point. Getting dressed, getting the baby ready, we did have a few things to do before we went.
Still, we did those things and were on our way in 15 minutes. It would have been an hour or two if Jared had fixed the washing machine first.
And this is why I don’t want Jared fixing things that might kill him.
He managed to trip and he hadn’t even gotten to the bump yet!
He did step over the bump most carefully once he reached it.
