She watched him doing the research for several days without saying anything. He watched all the videos, and read the blog posts. She ignored his actions.
Then she came home one evening to find an ad from the local hardware store on her desk. “You want a shop vac?” she asked over dinner.
“You left an ad for them on my desk.”
“Oh, not the shop vacs. I was thinking about the air compressors. They’re really so handy to have around. Nail gun. Spray painter. I mean, we are slowly remodeling.”
“Thought I’d pick one up on the way home tomorrow.”
“So, when are you going to start building the air cannon?” she asked.
He looked sheepish. “In a couple of weeks. I’m still making plans.”
She nodded. “Do I get to fire it?”
“You bet babe.”
