Many of us overthink and obsess over things that mzy not be an issue, but
we want working or looking right. I spent a month working on a stuck open
water valve, i may never shut off, but wanted it working. I now open and
close it regularly to keep it from seizing again. Nothing to get over if we
have the means and ability to fix it.
