Lately I’ve been home staring at the four walls … actually, all 28 walls. When you are bored, you count things. I have also been staring out each of my 16 windows.
I’ve been stuck indoors the past few weeks, so I needed to find humorous topics inside my house. Problem is that in more than 600 newspaper columns, I’ve already written about most of the rooms — including the two baths. My very first column was about the garage.
Successful people such as Levi Strauss and Steve Jobs began their careers with ideas conceived in the garage. This really bugs me. I have never started anything noteworthy in my garage besides my 1978 Ford Pinto when it was only 9 degrees outside. I should get some points for that. And although I did start to clean the garage once, I never finished, so I can’t take credit there.
