My ex-husband and his annoying habit
of bringing greasy old carburetors and things into the house to work on.
So last week when my friend called me to tell me this story, my first
response was "Where does this guy live?"
Now reassured that i was not related
to him by marriage, this is too hilarious not to share.
The way my friend told it, this guy
pushed his motorcycle from the patio into the living room, where he
began to clean the engine with some rags and a bowl of gasoline. When he
finished he sat on the motorcycle and decided to start it to make sure

dispatched to the scene. They loaded the husband on the stretcher and
