I can’t get Bob to willingly replace the shower curtain or take out the trash or pick up his jeans from the bedroom floor. But I can always count on him to volunteer to make me a vase out of a wine bottle. He’s got his priorities in order, clearly.
If you’re interested in the diy, I’ve updated the original post to include warnings about the thickness of bottles and a safer way to use the flame. Sometimes, you realize these things after a few more experiments.
I wish he would concentrate this hard on the laundry.
