*walks over around him and holds up a battered-up metal box, with lots of dents and nicks in it, but seems sturdy enough* Is this okay?
Wow, a heater? Sounds hard… but, yeah, okay! I’ll help you with that too, then.
… Sure, that works. We can use the wheel axle as a post. Do you want to paint it? Or- paint it white and draw on it, I don’t know. I think we’ve only got black and white paint.
It’s not that hard. I’ve made one before- or- designed one before? Or- anyway, it’ll be fine. Way easier than coming up with something to fix the air and water.
Mm… it does, but I can put up with it. For a while, anyway.
Mostly I avoid noise ‘cause it makes things brighter and brighter. If things get too bright, the real headaches hit. Or worse, seeing stuff and- seizures. It’s better to play it safe.
- But now I think- maybe I got over-cautious. No pain no gain, right?
If I stay calm, I’m okay. I think.
Good! *wipes his forehead* I’m just about done now. :)
How about you?
Ah, good. - It was starting to- build up a bit. Show me your mailbox masterpiece, then.
I don’t think this stuff will get much cleaner, so I’m done too. As for ideas… hm. Maybe… yeah! I have one. There’s enough parts here to build a heater for upstairs - then it won’t be so cold in the winter.
Got it. *gets up to get a drytowel from the kitchen, then comes back and does as he’s instructed, kneeling down on the floor*
…then I just hit it? Make it flat?
However you want. You should be able to hammer it into a mailbox-ish shape. - A rubber mallet would be better than that wooden one, but it’ll do the job. Just don’t hammer your hand along the way.
*scrubbing at some rust* That was quick. *hands over the metal sheet* Go for it. You know what a hammer is, right?
- uh, first wrap the end of it in a cloth. Then it’ll make less noise.
"Ay-eye"? Uh… no…
Uhhhhh what about a mailbox? I just got a letter from my friend and it was on the window. So when you get mail, the pigeons will know where to put it. :)
Uh yeah, a bird. You got a letter?? Out here? Huh. … I was going to say pigeons don’t deliver mail, but I must be wrong. How’s the friend?
Hm. Okay, sure, a mailbox. It won’t use many parts - why don’t we split the difference, make that and something more useful too. Um- not that a mailbox isn’t useful. Maybe we’d get more mail if there was a place for it.
Why don’t you try and hammer this metal sheet into a box shape? There’s some tools in the basement.
