I tinker…

I’m not sure if you have ever watched Iron Man, but if so, you might remember this conversation between Tony Stark and Pepper…

“You experience things and then they’re over, and you still can’t explain them? Gods, aliens, other dimensions? I’m just a man in a can. The only reason I haven’t cracked up is probably because you moved in, which is great. I love you. I’m lucky, but honey, I can’t sleep. You go to bed, I come down here. I do what I know. I tinker. Threat is imminent and I have to protect the one thing I can’t live without. That’s you. And my suits, they’re, uh…”

“Machines.”

“They’re part of me.”

“Distractions.”

“Maybe.”

This is me. I do what I know. I tinker. There is no doubt in my mind that there is no one else who thinks as much about the training as I do. I will never be beaten because I did not do my job preparing.

I remember hearing Tony Stark say this and I thought…that’s what it is…I tinker. Threat is imminent…

Merry Christmas.
