February 05 | Christmas Bang
One Christmas Melissa got some inflatable furniture - a chair and an ottoman. After all of the unwrapping frenzy of the morning, she wanted to inflate it. We started by breathing air into it, but these pieces were quite large.

I had the brilliant idea to use our dad's air compressor: the furniture would be inflated in a few short minutes. So we walked out to the shop and inflated away.

Everything was great until the chair popped.

It was December; the cold froze the plastic which made it quite brittle. The compressed air was no doubt warmer than the frozen plastic - the combination of the two was just right to pop the chair with a loud bang.

Melissa was very mad at me and sulked for weeks. We had to buy her a new chair to replace the one I popped.
