48105Re: [bolger] Epoxy and vinegar
- Jan 31, 2006There was a day a couple of summers ago when I ran out of stainless screws
in the middle of a boatbuilding session. Jumping into the truck, I drove the
hour or so to the nearest supplier. Walking out of the store, I ran my hand
through my hair. The sticky gobbet I encountered was [of course] epoxy, and
in the summer heat, it could only be a short time before it congealed.
Forseeing imminent 'boat-builder pattern' baldness, I ran into the nearest
fast food joint, which happened to be a sub-sandwich emporium:
"Do you dress your salads with vinegar?"
"Uh, yeah, red wine vine..."
"Please give me some in a cup"
The staff no doubt entertained their friends with the story of the guy who
asked for a cup of vinegar and then with obvious pleasure, poured it over
his own head.
Good stuff, vinegar.
