I know there are times when every home owner wishes they were renting. This post is for those people. The next time you find yourself replacing the air conditioning/water heater/driveway/whatever, think back to this post and remember: this will never happen to you. And be grateful.
Here is what our new door looks like (in "bad" (good for me) weather/lighting).
|Note the doormat, which does not say "DOMOWA"|
Now, I'm not saying that it's ugly (saying being the operative word, because that happens to be exactly what I'm thinking). I'm only saying that I wonder who picked out this handle. That's all I'm saying.
It's metal. It's aaaaa....n interesting design. And it's huge. To put it in perspective let's compare it to a hand that uses it regularly.
Now, this hand, while certainly having proportionally larger proximal interphalangeal joints* than many other hands, is no smaller, in a general way, than regular-people hands.
It is a large and mysterious handle. And if you own your home, you are unlikely for THAT to be the first thing that greets your friends and neighbors. I mean, it wouldn't be if you didn't like it. And that's why you should be happy you own your home. THE reason. (Well, that and the option to hang your own house number properly.)
*Yes, I looked that joint thing up. But see how smart I'm getting!?! For those of you not in a position to smarten up at such an amazing rate as myself, you may refer to the joints as PIP joints. The website I found it on says so.
