Recently, I looked up at the simple chandelier in my dining room and realized something: in the 12 years we’ve lived in this house, we’ve never changed any of the lightbulbs in it. And that means they were probably the same ones in there from when the house was built two years before that. These light bulbs should be in high school.

Do you have any lightbulbs in your house with extraordinary life? Because if so, they deserve to be singled out and praised.

Yep. The light bulbs in the chandelier in our foyer are original to the house from 2002. The chandelier is about 18 feet up, so I have absolutely no idea how I will change those bulbs when the finally burn out.

What is this then?
