Collateral Damage

Yesterday at church the Relief Society teacher had a big basket of beautiful cookies. The weight of the large cookies stressed the wicker basket and the handle broke about 1/2 hour before class. She was flustered and asked if anybody had another basket that she could use. There were three other women, including myself, there to lend a hand and offer our advice. All of us instinctively thought the reasonable thing to do was break the other side of the handle and create a wicker bowl. She agreed and commented that stuff like this infuriates her. At first I was confused until I realized that her two children are grown and these types of things don't happen to her on a daily basis. Improvisation is a daily task in our home. Here is Jason's collateral damage:

A broken stool. Jason thought it would be fun to throw it and watch it tumble down the stairs. Now the kids have to stand on an upside down laundry basket to brush their teeth.

A broken antenna. Definitely broken. Not even super glue can fix this one. We thankfully can still get some radio stations without static.

Later that day Jason tried to make it up to me by offering to clean my windows.
