OK, here is a funny on me.
My wife was at a quilting retreat over the weekend, and got home yesterday. She gets home, fortunately (-: without a valentine for me, fortunate cause I didn’t have one for her. Most often, I make them complete with poetry on the computer, a 2 to 4 hr project.
Working this weekend, so kinda distracted. Out doing a csection this morning, meaning 0400hrs, it is 0600hrs now. (and by the way gals, I don’t know why you call this a man’s world, that is the second airline pilot I delivered a baby for in the last 12 months)
So I asked my wife Sherie about the retreat, and inquired about the extension cord I lent her from the shop, one I had made, an 18 footer made with 14 AWG, heavy duty plug, and 4 receptacles in a metal box…..all to code. A little beaten up from use in the shop. She said it worked perfectly, they had numerous devices plugged into it.
So I retreats to the man-cave…..what can a guy do in a big hurry in the shop, says I to myself.
WHY NOT?, every woman has always wanted an extension cord for Valentine’s Day, RIGHT?
So, since I keep a lot of electrical components around, including cord, I make her a brand new shiny, 18 foot long 14AWG extension cord, with bright galvanized metal box, with new white receptacles, and a heavy duty plug…......and label it as Sherie’s Quilting Retreat Extension Cord on four sides with my handy dandy Brother label maker.
Presented it to her and gave her a kiss and said Happy Valentines Day. It got a laugh….....I hope it got me off the hook….......................(-:
.......didn’t I do good guys?
