So today was amazing in the construction zone. It was hot as hell outside but whoever (I am not sure who it was) put amazingly big butch fans all over the construction site to help us stay cool.
With the cool and my champagne I could not have been happier. Things are really progressing nicely since last week except the elevator hole (see last blog) is still there and that makes me nervous. Today, I had a long talk with the toilet man who explained how the toilets would work. In our new building there are separate men and women’s restrooms. No more unisex! As we observed his work, the toilet man mentioned something about having to cut the screws off which again made me nervous but he seemed kind and trustworthy.
Then there was this other butch man who seemed like he was a bigwig. We talked for quite a while and he was in charge of the sheet rock which, as Butch, I find very intriguing for some reason. I know that I irritated him by trying to have Butch conversation (I really didn’t care all that much about the sheet rock details, just his astrological sign and important stuff like that) but he was still very courteous to me and went out of way to explain things in a simple way.
Then there was this other guy who was doing some plumbing tasks and he had this amazingly large tool that cuts the plumbing pipes or whatever. We talked about the tool and he told me that one time he was using it and this magazine was doing a photo shoot for Wrangler Jeans at the same place and this guy asked if the model in the ad could use the tool in a photo and the model broke his finger because the tool was so heavy or intense or something like that.
By the way…a big shout out to Molly who is going to be taking my Butch pictures every week for the blog so now I don’t have to get the construction workers to put down their tools to snap a photo for me.
One of the butch construction guys really came on to Molly today but she didn’t realize until I told her. (DUH)
When we were almost done I spotted Paul Diemer who is the super butch Mashburn Construction head honcho on the Fox project. Whenever I am around him he always seems cool and collected but if I had his job, I would be screaming out loud all the time.
I am really proud to be a part of this project and am so excited about the progress.
As I left the theatre, I looked up and this little visitor was sitting on the newly painted facade, looking at me like she was saying, ” Hey Butch, I am ready for the Nick to move here! Hurry Up!” I waved at her and named her Cher.
