Nerfing up the vernacular

Myself and the small male are today festooned in the language of modification. Nerf gun modification. It’s a serious business involving my limited carpentry tools. “Yeah,” says he, taking off up the stairs with me bloody gluten free crackers in tow, “Don’t worry I’m just doing a simple air restrictor mod.” (The vernacular acquired via youtube is fantastic when uttered in all seriousness, incl on the telephone to grandma)

Righty-o.

Hours later, roars, “I need you to hold these very important pieces together, get up here.” Never before have I been this useful!!

I’m encouraging this dabbling since it will lead to visits to the plumbing shop and have a bit of a penchant for the plumbing shop. I especially like having chats to one older man behind the counter. The younger plumbing types are monosyllabic and do not get excited about my greenhouse experiment.
