“Kludge” (pronounced klooj) is slang that refers to a clumsy but effective fix for an engineering problem. It’s a cobbled-together solution that works fine, at least temporarily, even though it’s inelegant or seems farfetched. Let’s apply this concept metaphorically. You’ll be a kludge master in the next few days, skilled at making the best of mediocre situations. You may have surprising success doing things that don’t come naturally, and you find unexpected ways to correct glitches no one else has any idea about how to fix.
