We have a nasty vent in the basement. It is bent and warped and totally gross. It is also a gateway into a secret spider kingdom where billions of the little beasties grow. The vent cover thingie (Trent tells me is is called a heat register) is pretty bad, too. It's rusty and bent, and the fins that control airflow are falling off. Ew.
I bought a new heat register. It was not skewed or broken or rusty or breeding spiders. I knew it would be a fight to get it into the bent vent, so I put the new register next to the vent and went upstairs to grab some tools. A sledgehammer might do the trick. When I ran back down, I found this:
Georgie- my baby - put the register in the vent, bent metal and all. I think I've been put in my place - by a two-year-old.
