What do you get when you marry an engineer?
Well, the first thing you might notice is a closet overrun with plaid shirts. Next you will discover a husband who is both determined and talented at solving all household problems, from why your favorite wheat bread recipe abruptly stopped rising to why the light fixture in the basement doesn't work.
Then in a few years you may notice your son picking up some of his dad's tendencies...like constructing a little snow plow by lashing a snow shovel to the front of his sister's trike, tossing a few scoops of rock salt in the back bucket, and happily pedaling down the sidewalk.
That's what I get for marrying an engineer. It's a pretty good deal all around.
