And I ran out of string, dammit.
My little Pea Patch already has some small pods and flowers going and the tendrils needed another stretch of string to reach for.
I just barely had enough left to get it done so that means I needed to get some more coming now, before it slips my mind.
Because, you know, CRS.
I had to laugh when I got on Ebay and typed in a search for String.
All it returned was several pages of String Bikini’s.
Be strong Phil, ignore that shit and stay on task man.
It was surprisingly hard to find some stupid string.
Just plain old string.
Five minutes later I found what I was after, that wasn’t stupidly over priced, with shipping charges that made the whole deal cost over $30 fucking dollars!
Yeah, $35 for that roll of string.
Plus $15.00 Shipping.
Granted it’s 6500 feet long but I’m not going to use over a mile of string before I kick off, I hope.
So I opted for 1800 feet, $13, Free shipping.
Even that caused me to pucker but every damn thing is expensive these days.
Sweet Jesus it cost me $85 even to fill the tank on the truck earlier.
But now I don’t have to worry about string, of all things.
Sometimes the stupid stuff that doesn’t even register 99% of the time turns out to be a bit more important than you realize.
That last 100′ roll I just went through was new 6 months ago so I go through a lot more string than I would ever have imagined.
