At dinner last night I mentioned to my wife that the end of my guitar build is in sight...
"Oh, that's nice."
"By the way, deduct $70.00 from the checking account."
"I bought a mold on e-bay for my next guitar."
"You're NEXT guitar?!?
"Why do you need another guitar? What will you do with another one? Where will you keep them?"
"It's not just the guitar, it's the satisfaction that comes with creating it."
"Why not sell the one you just built?"
"I don't want to; I have a lot myself invested in it."
Thinking I did not see the rolling eyes expression, she replied "If it makes you happy, it's fine with me... as long as you do the 1/2 bath remodeling project before you start the next one."
It's like Bill Cory's virtual bumper sticker: 'It's a guitar builder thing, you wouldn't understand!'
