The Mechanic.
If you’re wondering what he’s doing, then I will tell you: he is learning to use a wrench, and he is having fun doing so. And if I can help him learn how to have fun while he’s learning, and help him learn the joy of discovery…then I think I’m okay taking three times longer to fix a bike. Or in this case, disassemble and lose parts off a bike.

Happy Sonntag, world :)

Anonymous knight, resting with sword, pink blanket, and a diagram of ‘a trap’ he designed, along with his sister, whose purpose is to “trap bad guys.” I’ve mentioned Kickstarter to him, but the ball’s really in his court.

Patiently waiting for dinner.
Somewhere, there is a tattoo and Darth Vader napkins, and perhaps you can almost see the quiet soothings of Joseph Arthur whispering through iTunes. On the menu: @countessbecca ’s Sweet Potato Curry…my absolute favourite. TO DIE FOR. Also, the title of a Gus Van Sant film starring Nicole Kidman. Betcha my wife can out-cook Nicole.
