A friend just called me asking for the name of a good plumber. He needed someone to help fix a plumbing leak under his kitchen sink. So I asked him “Do you have gum and string?” He thought I was skidding, but I most definitely was not!
When I was young, I used to watch my dad fix things around the house. He rarely told us what he was working on at any given time. But when I saw him chewing gum, I knew there was probably a leaky pipe somewhere.
