Life with an engineer, #421
Have you wondered what it is like to be married to an engineer?
I will tell you.
Being married to an engineer means not only that the squeeze points on the toothpaste must be configured properly - and that that is the task that the engineer attends to first after being gone after a week, but the toothpaste must be used to the absolute last drop.
The good thing about being married to an engineer?
You will never have to hire a repairman, because the engineer will either know or figure out how to do the repair.
When they do have to hire help, to paraphrase my boss, who is also an engineer (and whom I like very much), who has a family situation right now that prevents him from making a simple repair, the engineer's hands "are shaking."
