I’ve been spending more time than I wish at Home Depot lately. During my last visit I vented my frustration over a part that I had failed to attach. The toilet wouldn’t work because I could not fit the nut to the feed line. Harvey, a most pedagogical member of staff, just said:
“You have to be patient and find your thread”
Seriously this is a metaphor for life! There should be a Home Depot Chair of Practical Philosophy and I nominate Harvey as the first to hold that chair.
