This one's especially for PK, who harbors thoughts of handsome movers, and for Lisa, who remodeled her basement and was not treated to a single hot contractor in the process. My bathtub drain has been emptying slowly, and the handsome plumber returned. While the record must show that I deplore his practice of wearing his cap backwards, light brown coveralls aren't the most fetching outfit, and I'm not a fan of gold chains on men, there are two things in the plumber's favor:
• His beautiful clear blue eyes with long lashes.
• The way he took pains to rinse the drain spatters off the tub and surrounding tile. Such attention to detail! Such thoughfulness! Cleaning up so the woman in the room won't have to! Be still, my heart. Usually, a plumber leaves my bathroom a godawful mess, but this guy? A minute with cleaning spray and a single paper towel should suffice.
You can argue about which is hotter—a beautiful young man or a man who cleans up without being asked. But with The Handsome Plumber, I didn't have to choose.
