…and I would have based it, too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!

My last four stands of OG 15mm old glory CD early war German infantry are lying on table. Next to them lies four stands of HMGs. All are loose, though. Because somebody in this house has taken my @$%#ing glue. Yes, my glue. The one with “DAD’S GLUE! DO NOT TAKE!” written on it repeatedly in bold black Sharpie. It’s written thusly because harsh experience has shown my two older kids will TAKE my glue and, with callous disregard for me, not return it. I inevitably do not notice this until it is needed, late in the evening, once they are all asleep in bed, as I have been slaving away over the ungrateful little heathen all day. Frankly, I suspect another culprit in this heinous crime. The devious duo typically leave their ill-gotten goods in some easily found location. Yet I have scoured all the bedrooms and closets in the house with my pitiful iPod for a flashlight, and not discovered my glue anywhere. This leads me to believe that their mother has cleaned up the evidence of their crime behind them, and placed it in some godforsaken location where the kids’ art supplies are apparently kept. Like a mafia hitman, I always know when my wife has “cleaned something up,” as I never see hide nor hair of it ever again.

    This is why gamers shouldn’t have kids. I am thinking about getting rid of both of mine, so that I can focus on gaming.

    On the contrary, kids will help you get those armies painted faster than ever! Funny story about the glue, just the other day the last bottle of glue in the house to finish up a diorama on Abe Lincoln was my ‘hobby bottle’ at the painting desk. I seriously considered saying no and going out to the store just to get a new bottle…but I was too lazy to stick to my convictions.

    Basic military tactics – always keep a reserve

    Gorillagrip glue comes in two-packs down here. So one tube is for usin’ and the other gets put in Daddy’s secret glue storage pocket dimension (actually on a high shelf where people of shortness can not easily see it). Given the heat of the summer, and the reduced time for model making, my biggest glue-foe is not the child, but the weather – the darn stuff dries out in the, not-too-well-sealed, tube!
