Default tool hostage

Monica has made it pretty clear that she wants bookcases very soon..

And, I hate dolls.

Simple.. Build the bookcase, and put the head of the doll on one shelf, and the body of the doll with a note that says, You're welcome, and I love you, on another shelf. Then Run......... With your tools of course by your side...

You should be able to crank through a bookcase quickly; maybe make a second half-height one for under a window in her hobby room to make up for the delay. Making the second at the same time as the first isn't much more work.

Too bad she wasn't a Japanese major: they just read the weekly Manga issues and toss them out. As a student of Japanese (self study! pain!) when I went there, I picked up a bunch of them over the course of the trip just sitting beside the garbage for reader-recycling. But who wants to sound like a Manga character?! "aiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"

Are you suggesting that someone opens a door and can't manage to close it?
