Is this thing on?
Lately things have stopped working. Not “life” things. Actual things. Little tiny object things. Like the flimsy plastic top to my take-out container of pad thai. Can’t get it back on. Like the cork in the bottle of three-buck Chuck. Couldn’t get it off. Like the top to my bottle of contact solution. Couldn’t get it off; left toothmarks on it. Like the lightbulb in Eliina’s room. After getting myself up on the top step of a high ladder and unscrewing/rescrewing a heavy glass light fixture to change them, I realized I had accidentally replaced them with two burnt-out bulbs.
