OK. I cannot be the only woman who has a man that loves tools. I am married to a builder so THE MAN brings home all sorts of tools almost weekly…his famous last words are “this is the last tool i’ll ever need”. He tells me this all the time.
The worst thing about THE MAN bringing home his new tools is that he insists on showing me. By the way we aren’t talking cool tech gadgets that i may be interested in, we’re talking builders tools like drills, hammer drills (is that such a tool?), nail guns etc… so i have no freaking idea how to use these things, and quite frankly I DONT WANT TO either.
But that doesn’t stop THE MAN from trying to show me his new tool. Tell me all about the tool. Tell me how he’s going to use it on the job, all the AMAAAAAZING features it has. *yawn* It’s actually quite irritating to have to pretend to be interested. He gets offended if i don’t pretend to think its the most amazing thing i’ve ever seen.
So tonight his latest tool, a $3000 thermal imagining camera, basically to seek out evidence of termites…i think. OH MY GOD he was all over the house looking taking infrared shots of everything, i mean everything. It works in the dark and he thought he was so cool looking at our sleeping kids with it. He even went outside and took pictures of the chickens…
He just wasnt feeling the “tool love” enough from me….so he actually tried to show my mother. HAHAHA like she knows whats going on! WHAT. A. TOOL.
While he’s trying to show my mum…im yelling over my shoulder…”not feeling enough tool love?”
I mean look at this guy….
So i married a tool… and i love him! xo
