Dave took me to lunch.
"Let's go to McDonald's because it's right by Home Depot."
As we are parking, he says:
"I like Home Depot. It's nice inside."
"It's a hardware store."
"It's still nice."
Once inside, we are having ten feet of copper wire measured and cut by a guy who has measured and cut wire for Dave before, as well as given lots of how-to advice. Dave smiles at me:
"This is fun!"
He needs paneling for the inside of Tower 13. He shows me what he is considering. I tell him why this is a bad choice, based on artistic principles right out of a book. We decided that wall board is the best so he gets a cart and starts loading it on. He is very cheerful.
"You're saving me a whole bunch of money!"
I go out and pull the truck into the loading area while he stands in line to pay.
We go on to McDonald's where we order lunch from the dollar menu.
I had a good time.
