Me: Honey? Did you have something in the oven?
Husband: My motorbike engine.
Me: *blink blink*
Husband: See this bearing here? Fits onto the crankshaft, but it’s REALLY tight – here, give it a pull. See? The only way to get the bearing onto the shaft is to heat it.
Me: Because er, metal expands?
Husband: Yeah! But it’s really cool-
Me: <notes apparent lack of irony>
Husband: The bearing must expand by a good half a millimetre-
Me: Did you just think this up, or did you read it somewhere?
Husband: Actually, the KTM manual-
Me: Says to bake your crankshaft in your wife’s oven?
Husband: Well, it doesn’t say anything about a wife. But it says to heat the bearing at 180 degrees for five minutes.
Oh, he makes me laugh.
