I hear this a lot

Tomcat subscribes to Family Handyman and, oh I don't know, a couple of other magazines like that. When he looks through a new issue, sometimes he'll start snickering. I'll look over to see him read a little further in the article, and then he'll begin cackling, his face turning red, tears squeezing out from the corners of his eyes, knee slapping - the whole bit. That's when he'll show me an article like, for example, "how you, too, can build a tri-level deck combination spa/hottub/compost maker in just one weekend." Except, Tomcat points out, they left out one tiny little step in the plans, the one where it says, "and then, a miracle occurs."

That's one reason I got him this for Christmas.
