Addendum to my previous post ... and socks

After receiving my email detailing the electrician's findings re: the cause of our electrified tub and shower fixtures, our formerly beloved contractor replied simply, "I'm sorry that happened" (actually, "I'm sorry for that happen," because English is not his first language, but I knew what he meant).

Apparently, in Ting's world, electrified bathtubs just happen. It may not be literally passive voice, but in meaning it clearly is. Sigh. Next time we want work done on our house, I'll be searching for a new contractor.

In other news, last night at the Sockshop I bought some cool socks that totally remind me of Fruity Pebbles:

Fruity Pebble socks & friends

(Included in the photo is another pair of socks I bought at the same time. Both are very soft, and I can't wait to wear them!)
