Our conversation just now:
“I went and put cold water on it – I just leaned over and stuck it under the shower real quickly and stood back up, but then the water rolled down my back and went into my underwear… but oh, well… Anyway, I put cold water on it, and it almost instantly started getting better. There are parts of it that are already back to normal color..”
“Wow. That’s just… crazy that it did that,” he laughs quietly.
“Yeah, the vibrations irritate it and make it react, I think. Like I said, I think I’ve had it happen before with some other massage thing or something, so I’m not worried… But it’s getting better, so…” and I shrug.
I continue after a few moments of observation of his resumed task, “What are you doing?”
Concentrating on making a fold that doesn’t want to fold, he replies, “I… uh… I’m… making a sheath.”
“Out of paper? See if Allison has some leather you can use for it… Wait. You have leather. Make a real one out of leather.”
“I don’t have any that’s sturdy enough.”
“Oh,” I sigh. “Okay.”
That’s how all people’s 2:30 in the morning looks, right? 😛
