|"There's a hole in the bucket, dear Liza. . ."|
Baptism by fire can be part of it. But once that part's done, I'm left to come up with a use for the damaged object. When there's a hole in the water can, at the very bottom, it cannot carry water again. Plastic could probably be "welded" and repaired in some way, but Things I get to do today yielded another idea.

A past post applauded a mulch scoop made from a milk jug. I called it the perfect scoop. A more careful review would have noted that it was flimsy and collapsed with pressure. So another scoop was creating itself shortly after.

Now in it's new form, the previously holey water can is a most sturdy sort of scoop for mulch and soil amendment distribution. A new life, rising not from ashes but from melted plastic, is ready to be of service.
