IIIIIIIIII Caulking material makes a great lip sealer Remember when something small, like a kitchen cabinet door wouldn't close and your father, without being asked, would head out to the garage, pick out some tools and fix it. I know it sounds impossible. But that's because today's man- about-the-house will walk by that kitchen cabinet door for the rest of his natural born life, even if it has a white flag flying from it in an effort to surrender, and pretend it doesn't exist. Of course, there are several good reasons for this; the main one being that the sports playoff season lasts from January through December. Guys are terri- fied of missing even one playoff game, because as everyone knows, his whole body will disin- tegrate into a soft, pliable disgust- ing blob, which closely resembles his wedding photograph. The other good reason is that AROUND TOWN Nancy Katz guys know there will be hell to pay. From his last experience of changing a light bulb 10 years ago, he's learned that the minute that he makes contact with any kind of tool larger than a cuticle scissors, there will be enormous explosions and fires until the whole house rises up and staggers out into the street, eventually col- lapsing, much like Godzilla. When faced with this situation, today's women have two choices. They can either become a sex slave to the f'wst repairman who shows up, which is almost impos- sible with hair rollers and a stained corduroy bathrobe, or enter the dark, deep, terrifying world of the Parts Section of the hardware store. There are so many people who have never made it out of this area that it used to be a regular feature of the tele- vision show "Where Are They NowT' A few weeks ago, I faced this problem when I noticed a loose tile in the bathroom that I'm sure my husband has been keeping to himself for the last five years. Knowing that my chances of get- ting a tile man to come out were about as great as someone mistak- ing me for Madonna, I went to a large home center to find all the tools to fix this. The great thing about these places:is that you .never have to worry about what you buy, because the likelihood of finding your car when youcome out are slim to none anyway. M27 mission was to buy some- thing called caulk and a caulking gun, which remarkably doesn't even require a 24-hour waiting period. I perused the aisles, which were filled with vats and vats of things. I could tell I was in the right section because there were a lot of guys covered in white dust, with pieces of plaster hanging from their hair. Since I had no idea what this stuff looked like, it was a lit- fie like picking someone out of a police line-up after having drops put in your eyes. But with a little help from a kindly store worker, who was busy opening boxes labeled vats of things, I was able to make my purchases. Now the remarkable thing about this is that the caulk- ing material actually works, but not necessarily on the file. It will seal your hands to your face with- in 10 seconds and your upper lip to the bottom lip, creating a tiny breathing hole, where you can whistle the word "Help" when you dial 911. Obviously, we've reached some sort of crises here in this country. You can have your Million-Morn March. And you can throw in your Million Mothers against Gun Violence March. I won't be there. I'm still waiting for the Million Small Repairs around the House March.
