I’m sorta handy. I have never been all that averse to real wrench work, and liked some of it. But I am a goofball, with some propensity to screw up projects such that they cause additional repair and take more money and time than they should. It’s a thought process problem basically. You get fanciful and whimsical where other people adhere to a straight line. Or you go through the swamp where other people walk around it. Either way, you do the non-sensible thing because it makes sense to you in an odd way.
Well ya know, I am 46 years old now, and you do accrue a certain wisdom at that age. But you also accrue a certain lack of energy and dullness that’ll slow you down, maybe cause you to make mistakes. I had to swap out a wiper fluid reservoir on the Corolla, because it was cracked and not holding fluid. I was not looking forward to this job, but here’s the day to do it, as it’s sort of warm. But I figured I’d be at it all day and break something in the process.
I opened the Amazon box for this part at 2:55pm and was done at 3:50. Had to jack up, take tire off, pull the inner fender well down, do the thing and reassemble. It was crazy slick the way I was going.
I’d like to feel it’s a function of being in the prime of life, mentally, but I took an Adderall before hand. It’s a helluva drug.
