As well as watching two parsimonius tightwads tough it out.
Watch. It will eventually degrade into one agreeing to pay but then "realizing" he left his wallet at home.
Ad hominem not far away...
I'm pretty sure this is how the whole Hatfield/McCoy thing started too,

Ain't that a bit redundant there, Roy?

It could happen.

Not from here. I prefer grits.

Careful you don't start a Jaquesfield/Conroy thing, son.

Ya see, this is why it's fun to ask Larry to come out and play.
Except for that part about the wallet. I'm pretty sure he was serious about that.

I carry a professionally ported and polished pair of crowbars.

CYA - well CMA, actually. I wasn't sure if akshully I knew what "parsimonious" meant.

No sir - the last thing I need. My "Aunt Dot" is still pissed over the whole Sherman's burning of Atlanta. Seems it's my fault, and all. 'Cause I was born in the "Nawth".

Well, I know it's not a vegetable and has nothing to do with a preacher.

That's prolly true, my being raised in the Sayowth and all.
P.S: I have an Aunt Dot, too.

Nope. As a Hatfield descendant on Mom's side, I can say it was, as always, a woman.
Family bible has a lot of Hatfield-McCoy marriages prior.

Is a 'parsimonious tightwad' the same as a 'cheap bastige'?
If it is, you're about half right.
I know for a fact that C-Less hasn't cracked his wallet open in so long that George Washington's gonna need sunglasses when the light hits him.

I was gonna hide mine under the seat in the truck.

I ain't no 'hominem'. I got two kids.

Nah, me and C-Less are bottomlanders.

I'm sorry, sir, but your poe has a tic. We don't allow those in here. We's decent folk 'n all. Quotation disqualified.

Please review my first paragraph, sir. (Hmmm, I suppose it couldn't hurt to see the "HOW DO I USE IT" section, could it? (Hmm, OTOH, that one George might become lonely without the other one...)

Creating things is what I do, the more challenging, the better. If was easy, anyone could do it.

There has to be a good reason. Any fool can beat their head against the wall, and call it a challenge. There's no satisfaction in that. BTDT.

FWIW, the reason I create material things to the absolute best of my ability is because 99% of my blood relations are crazier than s**t-house rats. This means that to be a responsible citizen, I cannot (in good faith) have children- whether I would like them or not, (and I would like them, but remember the old saying- "Bad Blood Will Out") The wife agrees with this after meeting the in-laws and my siblings, so I build to leave a legacy to future generations that would otherwise be fulfilled via progeny. Hell, the stuff I make may *never* be worthy of a museum galley- but that's no reason not to try. I've discussed this at length with my wife, and we've come to the understanding that children are a "get out of production free" card of sorts, and as such, we each feel the drive to create items of quality to reflect our individual senses of life for posterity since we will not be providing a future generation to carry on our values. I *know* a lot of folks disagree with this viewpoint, but the whole "nature" V. "nurture" debate has never been satisfacturally resolved for me, and I cannot bear the idea of adding parasites to our already laden societies.
Sometimes the whole thing makes me a little sad, but then I go make something beautiful (at least to me,) and the world seems ok again for a little while. Is there any other reason to build?
