Solder is a stupid word

April 18, 2011


Lloyd is working on his little project that I’m pretending to be interested in because when he wanders around thinking and talking about it I can get him to do stuff for me.

Lloyd: “See, if I can just get the protoromulator to spegork, then it will vortex at a greater speed.”

Lauren: “That’s awesome. Could you get me a soda?”

Lloyd (getting the soda): “Sure. All I need is to speborterate the hypergallum and – here’s your pop – then I can troom the glots.”

Lauren: “Chips?”

Anyway, part of this project with the albumin involves soldering some stuff together. We hit all the thrift stores, Harbor Freights and Radio Shacks in Lincoln on Saturday – looking for wire, switches and dials, but we really, really should have picked up more Band-Aids.

Can you see his burned thumb?

Soldering guns are hot.

    Ha! Your fake techno-jargon is HILARIOUS!

    Is that a motor, Lloyd? I can’t wait to see what you’re building.

      That’s fake techno talk?!?

      I sure hope it’s a time machine you’re building Lloyd. I’d be willing to test it.

    Yeah, solder is a stupid word. But are we saying it wrong? I think the Brits pronounce the “l”.
