So the recovery from the Lanai Party was relatively easy, with the exception of the all of a sudden leaky pipes under my kitchen sink. Ew, that sounded like some kind of sexual metaphor. Grody. Anyhow, the pipes were leaking anytime water went down the drain. There was a giant puddle under there, and I think it smelled a little bit funny...grody again.
Yesterday, I thought I'd try my hand at being a fix-it-lady, and leaned over to take a closer look. I gingerly touched a pipe with one finger, and water sprayed out everywhere. Obviously, this is not a job for me. I'd probably cry or something, a la the Bat Incident.
Anyhow, lucky for me, I've got Xiao and Tell for landlords. Xiao, the real fix-it-lady, came in this morning to take a look...
Xiao (as he has his head under the sink): You're sick! You're sick in your nose!
Me: Yeah, I've been sick for a bit
Xiao: Okay, okay, hold on. I will get medicine for you
Me: Oh, that's okay, I have some...
Too late! Xiao is already scampering down the stairs to his car. I watch him from the window as he paws through a large backpack. He them scampers back up.
Xiao: Okay, this is traditional Chinese medicine. It's from my mother. She takes care of herself, she knows what's good.
He hands me a little package that looks like this:
Me: Okay...thanks...what do I do with it?
Xiao: Oh yeah, I don't know, let me read it.
He then shines a flashlight on the back of the package (although the sunlight was coming in through the window 3 feet to his right) and reads silently to himself.
Xiao: Okay, now you take 6 of these, and then you take a nap. Later you take 6 more, and again, 6 more before bed. It will be gone tomorrow! You will see!
And with that, the sink was fixed and I had 18 new pills to take. They looked kind of like yellow M&Ms, I think...
So I took the six of them. And I guess we'll just have to see how this goes...
