fixing the good scissors
Wednesday, November 2 2005
(This was the household "good pair" whose destruction had to be thwarted at all costs if only for domestic tranquility. In any particular family, the protocols that go with the concept of "the good scissors" are mostly unwritten, but they are common ones and I'm sure they are familiar to you, dear reader. One of these protocols is that the good scissors can only be used on paper, not cardboard, wire, sheet metal, nor the foamy jackets one puts around plumbing.)Admittedly, I did reinforce the glue with a little clip of brass slipped into two drilled holes, but the scissors now seem to be tougher than before I broke them. They're not just good, they're Six Million Dollar Scissors.
