What’s the difference between Men and Boys?
RIGHT! .... you guessed it! The price of their toys .... OR .... was that quantity of toys? Or was that the one with the most toys wins?? Well, I’m confused!
I have to say first that there aren’t too many men with tool boxes sitting in their garage the size of the one Charles has .... Well, look at the picture! I'll wait...... You know the other old saying a picture is worth a thousand words. Boy, I’m just full of idioms tonight. Please note ladies the "tool box" has cable TV, DVD and VHS on top as well as a full sterio system inside! No wonder he loves being in the garage.
Charles has tons of tools, all kinds of tools, but of course there are always new ones out there that are bigger and better than the ones he already has. Sound familiar??? He started out buffing the aluminum with the buffers he already has but they wouldn’t do. Oh no! He NEEDED this better one, bigger one. Hey, there are pictures earlier in this blog to prove he was buffing per-bigger buffer. Well, look at the new one!
I mustn’t forget the new MultiMaster do all fandango that will do it in lightening speed with half the work. “There's no job too large or too small for the FEIN MultiMaster tool .... to ensure you get every job done right .... the FEIN MultiMaster makes every job faster, easier and more thorough”. This is starting to have the ring of infomercials. Oy Vey! Are we going to factor in the cost of these new toys, oops, I mean tools in the cost of the renovations??? This may change things …. like the “bottom line” a bit if we do, won’t it?
Now let’s be honest, ladies, we like “stuff” too, sewing stuff, scrapbook stuff, painting stuff, and all kinds of crafting stuff. BUT our “stuff” is really small and for the most part cheap compared to the price of his “stuff”. Now I’m really not complaining, I want you to understand, he’s having fun, and I want to keep him happy, AND his “stuff” is getting the job done ..... As Sergeant Joe Friday would say, "JUST THE FACTS Ma'am." I AM stating the facts, ..... well, anyway, as I see it.
