You seem pretty normal to me Rudge, you know what things you like, and you honestly enjoy doing them.
It's been a mighty long week it seems,
Feels like a couple of weeks ago you announced your wife was 'going to New York', maybe that was the Prelude.
I have a set of those exchangable screw driver tools, they were five bucks at an Auto shop, bought them a few months ago while out on a walk. I like walking, by myself; I know weird hey ?
I think the point is the guys' doing all the sneeky stuff that you feel you "should" be doing, cause of TV shows, or whatever socially disorientated media that puts those ideas in our heads, don't know what they really want. But you know that anyway, ...
I like to tinker around fixing stuff, it's a lot of fun. I spent about three hours fixing my electric guitars' input jack last night. Took it all apart, cleaned up all the contacts after unsoldering the wires (one had snapped off) , aligned it all so it would sit in the space comfortably, ... the joy of doing that rather than paying someone to do it, and the pleasure of hearing the cleaner tone due to cleaner connections, ... yep gee you thought you were boring.
I re-strung one of my acoustic guitars, same drill, make everything clean and tight as you re-assemble.
yes, I got rid of my wife, it went on too long and having time to meditate on the stuff you like doing is super cool nowadays.
Hang in there mate, she'll be back sooner than you know it.
