The Husband’s inventive spirit is alive and well. He has just announced that he wants to make a giant outside thermometer from a round bottomed flask and some meths. I am too hot to ask how/where he is going to get these things from. He asks me if I remember the flasks from Chemistry class. Oh yes, I remember. You mustn’t absentmindedly put the flask down on the desk…My fear is that some passing drunkstrel will upend the thermometer and drink the meths.
