So I’m back from Lucca! I wasn’t there for long, because I had to head home early for a medical emergency of a family member (everything is fine! don’t worry!). So I only spent one day there instead of two, as originally intended. But wow! What a show! I heard that at some point there are 250.000 daily visitors. The whole city if full of people in awesome costumes … If you ever have a chance to go there, don’t pass on it!
About today’s strip: Everyone who appreciates tools has a horror story like that. Of course, you have to choose your battles. For instance, my wife likes to use our kitchen scales as a storage space for whatever happens to lay around in the kitchen. It used to annoy me, because, by golly, it is a measuring instrument not a repository! At a certain point I decided to not care about it anymore, because It’s just not worth fretting over a 20 dollar scale, that may be 2% off due to mistreatment.
