Another Parable

was the question again?"


There's a piece of plastic that's part of the shower assembly (purely cosmetic, of course - all it does is to hide the screws keeping the shower head bar up) that's been falling off every once in a while, and over the last six years, has been falling off at a more frequent rate.

I've taken to ignoring it once it falls off, because, now, it's also falling off immediately, or soon after, I put it back. Pointless really:

I can't hammer it back because it's plastic - hammering it back just makes the housing looser.

I can't glue it back because while that'll make it last longer, it makes changing the shower head, when it comes time to that, impossible.

So I leave it on the shower stall floor.

I'm content.

Not happy, but content.

    Have you considered glueing tiny, thin magnets to the cover and housing?

    Not really, but that kinda falls into the whole realm of doing too much workfor a little thing.
