Pondicherry Readers Speak Out

The Pondicherry Book is the first thing I’ve ever owned that’s not either a tool or related to plumbing.  Or vitamins.  I like to eat vitamins while I drill into the fetid drywall beneath the sink.  There is no real purpose to this drilling; nevertheless, I get a real kick out of changing the bits and boring huge senseless holes into the wall and, upon occasion, the floor.  Oftentimes, I don’t even properly use the drill.  I just slam that bit in and crush it into the wall or the floor with brute, angry, violent force.  I scream while I do this, which is often.  Most of the time my drill isn’t even properly charged.  I think it cuts straight through bone too.

    I know O’Brien. He came to repair my utility sink after it became clogged with trash. He stands 6’11 and has no sense of humor whatsoever. Perhaps that is what happens to tall men who spend most of their time staring into wet holes. Anyway, O’Brien cleared the obstacle. It was an overall pleasant experience but I would not recommend letting him into your home. If you can confine him to the basement and deal with him through a safely-locked door, that might be alright. But I wouldn’t get too close to him.
