The one where Jeff becomes a welder

Jeff has been buying "how to" books about welding recently.  I'm not sure what to make of it.  Should I be worried?

Late yesterday he asked me if I wanted to go to Barnes & Noble with him for more welding books.  I declined, primarily because I was already well into the wine cabinet but also because I was afraid to find out what kind of people we'd encounter in the welding section of a bookstore.

After he went to bed last night I opened one of the books he bought because I thought may be "welding" was a metaphor for something awesome.  It's not.

I don't know what kind of trouble he's stirring up this time, but I know I should be afraid.  Very afraid.


  1. Maybe he's gonna built an elaborate wrought iron fence around your entire property?

    Or maybe he wants to be a Scrap Metal Sculptor haha ;-)

  2. I see a torture cage in your future.

    Curious, how many books does one need before the actual trying can commence?

  3. @Jay: I've considered both those possibilities. Scrap Metal Sculptor, however, is unlikely since there's the possibility of making money. Jeff only enjoys hobbies that cost money. Lots of money.

  4. @Annabelle: Jeff is part of the "first you practice, then you play" school of thought (unlike me, who just jumps into things balls to the wall with no training whatsoever).

    And torture cage is actually at the top of my list of suspicions.
