It’s wonderful to have a child go to med-school, especially pleasing to see your son or daughter become a doctor.
But I’ll share a secret with you– it comes in really handy to have a son who’s a plumber! And another secret I’ll share today– I have two sons and they are both plumbers!
Funny thing too, Most folks I meet are sure envious about my son’s being plumbers while their child is just a doctor. Of course they often have a leaky faucet at home, too. And, from what I hear lately, a little maintenance on the home plumbing might make you wish your son hadn’t been so eager to go to Med-School.
I wouldn’t know though–my sons are plumbers… eh
Seriously, we moved into a new house about 13 years ago. We all met at the house before we moved in. Hubby and me and 4 adult children. We stood in the living room with our daughters and families while the sons scattered with pen and paper in-hand. I wasn’t sure what all the gibberish and scribbling was about until we moved in.
All bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures had been upgraded to the newest, brightest and prettiest. Truthfully, there was a lot I didn’t know about plumbing until we moved into this house.
Our sons had added a few amenities that us baby-boomers had never seen. I remember how surprised I was to see something as simple as an elongated commode seat, which is much more comfortable than the older rounder type. The Rain shower head is the best, like standing beneath a soft waterfall.
We might not get our appendix removed for free, but with plumbers in the family we always have the newest gadget or plumbing accessories.
