When you think 'Scott McNulty' the first word that comes to mind probably isn't 'handy' (I imagine the first word that comes to mind is 'Man Candy,' but I could be mistaken). It is true that I am not known for my way with power tools, however, I have been a long time aficionado of Do It Yourself shows. I'm more likely to write a check and have Someone Do It For Me, but since today is the manliest day of the year (Super Bowl! Woo! Go team!) I thought I should do something appropriately macho.
I replaced the doorknob on my bathroom door, and I did it all by myself without reading the instructions. Can you smell the testosterone?
You might wonder why I was replacing the doorknob on my bathroom door, and I will tell you. The second week I was in this apartment (I have been here for almost 2 years now) I locked myself out of the bathroom. This normally wouldn't have been an issue. I would just take my time and figure out a way to get in without damaging anything. Sadly, I really had to pee. I broke the mechanism that keeps the door closed (but the knob itself was fine) and urinated.
The door stayed that way until today (freaking some people who have used my bathroom out a little. 'Umm.. Scott, why doesn't your bathroom door close?' 'Oh, I like to watch. Carry on.'). However, today you may use my bathroom with a door that securely closes, just make sure to wave for the camera.
Bob Villa would be proud. I think I'll go install some Pergo flooring now.
