Contractor Hell

As I write, a guy with a power saw is cutting a small rectangular panel from

the floor of my study behind me. Yes, folks, I am in Contractor Hell. Got

guys in to give us central air conditioning. This is our fall

budget-buster. (Last year’s was the waste system

.) I never realized there would be so much duct work involved. My basement

now looks like the set for those hunt-the-alien sequences in Alien

. Am I getting any work

done? Are you kidding?
