Last September, Gary pulled apart the stereo system and bought all kinds of new cables and components. And then we came down with the Wild Boar Flu.
He never put it back together, because he preferred to fantasize about how good it was going to sound.
I never followed your advice and started plugging things in randomly, because I thought of how I might feel if Gary started messing with one of my projects. That, plus there's an unwritten rule I don't clean anything up in that room until the stereo's set up.
Soooooo ... now it's been almost half a year, and here's the state of the stereo system:
Cabinets all cattywampus, cords hanging from the chair to the hearth to the corner, EXPOSED WIRES MRS. CRAWFORD, EXPOSED WIRES.
So he has promised that for Valentines Day he will Finish The Stereo System. Will it happen? Place your bets, folks, place your bets.
