They say duct tape can fix anything, and I agree. We broke down halfway to Bordeaux on the highway. While trucks thundered by, we lifted the hood and saw the air hose had cracked in two. After trying with everything from socks to electrician’s tape, my husband finally broke down and let me put duct tape on the hose. I fixed it. Of course, a man won’t admit his wife knew better, so he regalled our friends with stories of his socks. I put duct tape over my mirror. When he asked why, I said, “To fix my self esteem.”

Thank you, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, for the prompt!
