Although I've never heard him say it, I can vividly imagine my grandfather, a gentlemen in the highest esteem, saying to a much younger versions of my father, "If you need me, I'll be in my study." The study was once a place for the gentlemen to retire to. He'd hang his wool coat on the wall and sit down in a deep, worn leather chair. You knocked on the door before you entered your father's study and you definitely didn't open the drawers of the desk in your father's study.…
If your father is anything like mine, he owns every single tool that has ever been featured in one of Harbor Freight Tools‘ member’s only catalog. When I’m at my parent’s house, the tool I need is always just a simple request away. My dad has this miraculous ability to materialize any given item from an unnavigable mess in less than a minute. It’s quite impressive actually.
However, now that I’m a gentlemanly scholar living life on my own, I realize that I don’t have any of the necessary tools I need for miscellaneous tasks. So I went to Home Depot multiple times to pick up the tools I needed to set up my new place. Here’s a list of basic household tools you should start with so you don’t have to make five separate trips like I did. Believe it or not, you can’t fix everything with duct tape.
Before I moved, I belonged to a gym with a sauna. Sunday afternoons, I’d manage to drag my ass out of the house just to sit in the steam room and sweat out all the bad things I did to my body over the weekend. Now my Sundays are spent moaning in bed, burping up whiskey and questioning my life’s choices.
I also used to have pretty bad asthma as a kid, which is relevant, trust me. My mother used to bring me into the bathroom, run the hot water and sit me on her lap to help me breathe. Looking back, it got relatively steamy. But now, as a 6’1″ 200 pound man, the weak water stream doesn’t produce nearly enough steam to get me as sweaty as a Bavarian power lifter.
Because of this, I decided to experiment and figure out the best way to get my bathroom steamier than the car sex in Titanic. Click through for step-by-step instructions on how to convert your bathroom into a steam room.
