I just met with a contractor to get a bid on installation of the deck railing (our deck builder bailed on the railing part). He also does interiors, so I also talked to him a little bit about the Big Remodel project: mostly the internal stairway to the “golden” crawl space, and the new studio.
When exchanging contact info at the end of the meeting, I suddenly noticed that he is missing half of the index finger on his right hand.
HOLY SHIT. MY DAD HAD THE SAME THING ON HIS LEFT HAND.
I don’t believe in “signs” or anything supernatural, but it would be a nice touch if my new studio — the one I have been saying my dad would have built for me, if he could — the one that I am going to use my dad’s money to build — it would be nice if it were built by a guy whose hands were a little bit like my Dad’s.
