The Struggle (part one)

Posted on 1 May 2014

“Yesterday, I fixed that old steam radiator. Threaded a new valve into the side, removed the handle from the base, unscrewed the packing nut from the stem. This subpar toolbox only had one wrench, so I was lucky it was a three-quarters or I’d have been screwed.

“By the time I was done, this 100-year-old piece of American-made cast iron was singing like a bird. Now to most people, this story would seem boring. But to me, it was immensely satisfying because I enjoy fixing radiators.

“You like fixing this town, Leslie, you always have.

“You know it’s an uphill battle, but you love the struggle.”
