Now all I need is a barrel. And some internal guts, like a bolt and firing pin, would be nice. I know a lot of people who need some internal guts, too. Me among them.
When I tried to attach the upper receiver to the lower tonight I had some problems. They got locked up, like two dogs in a parking lot. At first I thought my new upper was out of spec, and I precipitously cursed a malevolent God, but it turned out to be a simple deburring problem. I had to deftly file some rough edges off an internal piece. It should not have come like that, but I should have anticipated it.
All life ultimately, I reckon, consists of deburring problems. Especially relationships. Now in this instance I had to take the rough edges off the male piece so that it would glide more easily into the female, or receptive, piece. Sound familiar?
Life is all about smoothing the edges. It don't cost you anything, and it gives you a bit of the upper hand, should you need it. I'm not doling out unsolicited advice, by the way. Just mumbling some affirmations to myself into the bathroom mirror.
I fit the rough piece into the small hole, with some emollient. Tomorrow I seek 16 inches of chrome hardened steel to jut out the front. No wonder girls like guns. They're like porno Harlequin romances. And guns don't fart in their sleep.
