The Kitchen Sink

Or, more specifically, the faucet.

So this is my kitchen sink. It is fairly unremarkable, as sinks go. It doesn't have a garbage disposal, which makes me frowny. I would love a garbage disposal, but installing one is magical trigonometry for which I do not possess knowledge and thus it is also scary. But I digress! My kitchen sink, like most kitchen sinks, has an associated faucet:

Like many faucets, if you want water to appear, you raise the lever thingamabobber (that's a technical term). Like so, see?

That lever doohickey is the troublemaker, and the topic of this post. You guys, it falls down constantly. If you have ever used a sink or context clues, you know this means that the water shuts off.

WHICH DRIVES ME INSANE.

I can't figure out how to fix this. There are no screws or removable parts or anything which seems like it can be tightened. Google isn't helping me because my Google-fu, on this topic, is weak.

Help me, Internet Nation. You're my only hope.
