Fixing that crack in the drywall in the den is going to be “a piece of cake,” Gary Benson recently told his family.
“Yep, I’m going to take care of that crack in no time,” he explained. “The first thing I’ll do is gather my tools to make sure I’ve got all the supplies needed for the job. That’s step one. Actually, step one is getting my mind right. You don’t want to go into a drywall repair situation without a plan. So, making the plan is step one. Step two? Supplies.”
Benson then proceeded to walk his family through the various steps, which involved everything from cleaning the crack to “applying a light coating of compound, and by light I don’t mean just globbing it on there like a crazy person.” By the time he reached step seven, his wife exited the room.
“I can’t believe you’re leaving!” he exclaimed. “I was just getting to the part about scraping the tape with a wide knife.”
Meanwhile, Benson was also unable to get his 12-year-old son excited about the repair work.
“Don’t you want to help me?” he asked the boy, only to learn his son had been playing XBox the entire time and hadn’t even realized his dad was in the room.
