No big deal, right? Well, I have 12' ceilings. The light is over the kitchen counter, but you can't reach it by standing on the counter. To get to the light you have to stand on the very last steppable step on a tall tall and slightly rickety ladder that lives in the stairwell of the building, then sort of stretch over to your right so that you can grab the bulb.
Did I mention that I hate heights? I finally figured out that i could accomplish this feat by holding on to the sprinkler pipe with one hand while grabbing the bulb with the other. It wasn't fun. In fact, it was significantly not-fun. And tomorrow I get to do it again with a new bulb, since I didn't have a replacement here.
