Romance: alive and well in this house

Me: Honey? Did you have something in the oven?

Husband: Yes.

Me: What?

Husband: My motorbike engine.

Me: *blink*

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.
