We briefly interrupt our blog hiatus to bring you the following report:
So there I was, blow-drying [aka “doing a fen”, for the Hebraically-oriented among you] my freshly washed shaitel. MAG was kindly helping me by holding the shaitel head in what can only be described as a choke hold.
In a glance, YZG took in the situation and dashed out of the room. In practically no time at all, he was back with a wooden board, a cardboard box, a cardboard tube, a used CD, a plastic CD case, some nails, and a hammer in tow.
Then, in a scene straight out of “MacGyver”, he quickly proceeded to construct - see? this isn’t off-topic at all! – a [perhaps temporary and makeshift yet highly functional and very sturdy] stand for my shaitel head.
Here’s a picture of the stand:
Here’s a close-up of the nails:
The Our Shiputzim editorial board wishes to take this opportunity to express our appreciation and gratitude to YZG and to commend him for his very fine work.
In other news, the carpenter has still not arrived, but yesterday, he assured us that he would be coming “by the end of this week.” Meanwhile, ASG’s room has been more or less rehabilitated, and we are making slow-but-steady progress on the playroom.
We will of course bring you pictures as they become available.
And now back to your regularly scheduled hiatus…
