My father kindly pointed out to me that in my paperwhite maintenance post I say “Jimmy-rigged”, which isn’t the right term. So I looked it up! The correct term is “Jury rigged” and it actually has an interesting origin:
Jury rigging refers to makeshift repairs or temporary contrivances, made with only the tools and materials that happen to be on hand. Originally a nautical term, on sailing ships a jury rig is a replacement mast and yards improvised in case of damage or loss of the original mast.
Thank you Wikipedia for this fun fact to start my Friday and thank you Dad for caring so much about all I have to say.
