Justification For MORE CLAMS! (in abpw)

Youngest showed up today around noon - looking like he had a mild sunburn.
"You been to the beach in this weather? (cold - for California - and rainy) I asked.
"No. Why?" he asked
"You look like you got a bit more sun than you bargained for." I point out.
"No, I just worked up a sweat running over here." he said nonchelontly sp?).
"RAN!?" I asked incredulously
"It's only 11 miles." he says over his shoulder on the way to the shop.
"Someone chased you for 11 miles!?" I yell at him.
"I'm getting ready for my first Half Marathon - 13.3 miles. Been doing 8 or 10 mile runs just about every day for the last month." he explains.
"You adopted and no one told me? Mountain biking, cyclo cross and 70 mile bike rides weren't enough for you so now it's marathons!?" I yell.
We discussed his sanity for the next four hours we spent on his coffee table.
The glue up used 22 clamps - his new personal best. Now I have justification for MORE CLAMPS.

Ah, now it's clear. Only problem is, you can never count on all of 'em working.

Abalone!! We all know it took a lot of conch-ious effort to let him use your tools -- you're generally so shellfish about them.
However, it seems to me that anyone, like your friend, running those kinds of distances would have mussels. probaby of several varieties. <grin>

He's more sane than the paper clip specialist I had for an advisor in grad school. Guy had a bad heart. Had a handicapped sticker because of his bad heart. One of the few people other than the janitors that had a key to the elevators on campus because of his bad heart. Has a reserved parking space two feet from the door, in an area where even the president of the university was forbidden to park, because of his bad heart.
One day there was a snow storm. I managed to get to the classroom for my 8 AM class, barely. He didn't show. Was worried that he had gone out to shovel or something and had the Big One--went down to the departmental office and asked the secretary if she had heard anything--no. She tried to call him, got no answer. Asked the chairman of the department if he had heard anything, no. Well, I'd done all that I could reasonably do given that I didn't know where he lived, so I went back to my cubicle and studied.
Had an 11:00 with the guy. Figured he'd be a no-show but went anyway. There he was. I asked him if he was all right. He said that he was and asked me why the concern. I told hm that we had missed him for the 8:00 class. "Oh", he says. "My car wouldn't start, so I ran. It was only seven miles".
