My Dad is, well--erm, how shall I say this? Unique. Right. He's unique. One of my Dad's hallmarks is his fondness for rigging things around the house. Each time I come to visit, I never know what I'm going to see. Usually it involves caulk, duct tape or some type of wire. On this trip he hasn't let me down. My first observation was noticing that every wireless phone in the house had a homemade "hook" attached to the back of it using a healthy dose of silicone adhesive. Of course I thought the function of this was to hook the phone to the nearest stationary object. But I failed to see the dual functionality. My father quickly did a demonstration for me to show me that the device was meant to slip your fingers through, thus "cradling" the phone in your hand. Of course. Why didn't I think of that? :)
My next discovery was in the shower. Now, I think I can safely make the claim that the Armano household is one of the few to boast the use of Diner-style condiment dispensers utilized as shampoo and conditioner containers. Can you guess which was which? Well the shampoo was in the "Ketchup" dispenser of course--while the conditioner was the "Mustard". I have to say, it did add a new dimension to the shower experience. Oh well, I'm sure I'll have some new examples next year. In the meantime, could you please be so kind as to pass the Shampoo?
