To my surprise the other day, I went to turn on my living room light switch, and it didn’t work. Well, it kind of worked. The light would turn on when tapped down and then turn off when tapped down again. It didn’t even click up and down anymore.
It was right before my daughter’s nap, so I was about to have a good window to fix it!
After nap commenced, I riffled through some of the old odds and ends in the basement (the treasure trove of abandoned tools), and I found a brand new light switch in the box. Score! I shut off the breaker and went to work.
