My Girlfriend Is MacGyver

I've got this shower caddy that looks something like this...

Anyway, I've used it for some time at the old place and it works great. However, at the new apartment, the height between the ceiling and the floor is just off. The caddy won't fit. The caddy is adjustable with various parts, but no matter what combination you use, it simply does not work out.

The caddy has been leaning against the wall, cluttering up the bathroom area since my failed attempt to install it. After getting sick of the clutter, my girlfriend takes a look at it and tells me that she can fix it. I'm pretty much saying... ya, right. She says that all she needs are a couple of wine bottle corks. Luckily, we save most of ours (for the memories).

Fifteen minutes later, she's done and it's completely installed and it's snug. A real-life MacGyver effort. I still don't know exactly how she got it working and I have no idea where the corks went... probably inside the metal poles to force the spring into a different position.

So, this blog entry is a big thank you to my MacGyver of a girl.
