    Call a relative or handyman...or else replace the object, unless of course the household repair really was simple, small, and undangerous. :shuffle:

    the last ten Merriam-Webster words of the day:

    Balkanize (Which reminds me...)
    jardiniere
    southpaw (Speaking only for myself, as a left-hander, I don't mind it at all.)
    kludge
    selfie
    numismatic
    tweep
    execrate
    celerity (Incredibly, this has nothing to do with celery. :eek:)
    requisite
