I love this whole “we’ll either defund Obamacare or shut down the government” thing. It reminds me of when I was seven years old and I knew I couldn’t win at Monopoly, so I would just knock all the pieces off the board and then go pout in my room.
"I started from scratch. I made another, then another. And by the end of the semester, by box number five, I had built this thing. You should’ve seen it, it was insane. I mean, I built it out of Peruvian walnut with inlaid zebrawood. It was fitted with pegs, no screws. I sanded it for days until it was smooth as glass. And then I rubbed all the wood with tung oil, so it was rich and dark. It even smelled good. You know, you put your nose in it and breathed in… it was perfect.”
