A riveting story

A few weeks ago, Annabelle bought a pair of really cute denim shorts. The first time she wore them, one of the many rivets fell off. Fortunately she found both pieces, and I put fixing her shorts on my list of Things To Do.

When I finally got serious about it, I stopped in at the fabric store and bought a little $3 gadget that the saleslady assured me would do the trick in pinching the rivet pieces back together. Nope, didn't work.

So then I went on ebay and found a slightly cooler $10 gadget that seemed even better suited for the job. It finally arrived the other day, but it didn't work any better than the first tool.

I'm pleased to report that the shorts are finally fixed now. The magic bullet? Super glue!
