He just might decide to do it. He will rummage around in the shop for the left over dripping faucet fixing parts left over from the last plumbing job. He will find them. But, when assessing the options, he will decide that it's better to replace the faucet, b/c it's 42 years old. So... it's a trip to town to buy the faucet, and supply tubes, and of course you have to have supper in town. He will need to take the sink off the wall to unhook the old faucet. He will decide that the 42 year old sink should be replaced. (Any one else build a house in the 70's when ruling colors were avocado and harvest gold?) What kind of a wife would I be if I told him we should NOT replace that hideous avocado colored wall sink? So... an other trip to town to pick out a replacement sink. Now, the wall needs a lot of spackling, b/c we found that a pedestal sink would best fit in the allowed tiny space. So, we returned with a new sink, and a tub of spackle. Waiting for spackle to dry is worse than waiting for paint to dry. Then, the spackle will need to be at least primed. The new sink will make the rest of the room look shabby. So... I'll be repainting the room. And making a new curtain for the storage shelf area. All to fix a leaky faucet. Perhaps we are looking at 2 - 3 days work, and $180.00. I sure hope that new faucet doesn't leak!
