Wives and water faucet washers are natural enemies. I often wondered why, and one day it dawned on me. The reason is simple. Since the days of the cave man, it has been understood that it is the husband’s job to replace the washers. I am aware that this story is not especially meaningful to those who have grown up in the age of washer-less faucets, but in the days before plastic, leather washers were used in faucets to cushion metal against metal and create a watertight connection. I encourage those younger readers to press on with this story, because the washers may turn out to be a metaphor for something profound. I have no idea what.
