And the peace was shattered by… mini trucks

We’ve had a couple of quiet weeks in Scifi hubby land. There’s been no extreme book buying (at least by Scifi hubby standards), only one trip to the comic shop, no comic cons and relative peace and quiet. I knew it couldn’t last.

The peace was shattered today by the noise of diggers, JCBs and wagons – mini ones. He has discovered a whole world of model/mini trucks where really sad people gather together to move a pile of dirt from one end of a sports hall to the other end using mini diggers. He finally found something that makes the scifi collecting look like something that normal people do.

Cries of “even the indicators work” and “look they’re putting a fire out” have been coming from his end of the sofa. He’s spent a long time describing his ideal mini truck (a tractor unit with a Mercedes Benz wagon on the back). I’m not sure whether I’m meant to pretend I’m taking him seriously or just kill myself laughing. Apparently there are meet ups all over Europe and we really should go along to one…

Luckily he can’t find anywhere to buy them, or a list of events, so maybe I’m safe – for now.
