This story isn’t about remodeling but it’s too funny not to share!
A friend of mine said she found some neat ideas for making Halloween decorations on Pinterest. (Yes, it’s way too early to think about Halloween but she’s one of those people who always plans way ahead.) She told her daughter about it and they decided to make pumpkins out of duct hose. Her mistake: asking her husband to order the duct. Instead of this, they ended up with this. Evidently, the daughter was very put out because there was no way to turn that into a pumpkin and the husband felt like a bumbling idiot.
But my friend decided all was not lost. She got some Playmobile and Lego people, painted their “clothes” bright orange and turned a horizontal cable management system into a tiny plastic jail! She said her daughter had so much fun playing “jail” that she went out and bought her this Playmobile police station to go with it. The husband enjoys playing “jail” too; he gets to live out all of his “NYPD Blue” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” fantasies.
Who knows — that little girl might become the Police Chief of Astoria, Oregon one day.
