My wife gave me the coolest present for my birthday - an expresso machine. Natasha, if you are reading this, thank you again :)

Update: Fix s/made present/gave present/. Thanks to jdavidboyd and phillup for free English lesson :)

  • You're wife is a machinist? And a glass blower?

    Cool!
    • This is exactly when I hate English - I don't know it good enough to tell if I said something stupid and everybody will make fun of me or maybe it just you trying to make bad joke :)

      • 'made' to 'gave me'

        unless... she really did manufacture the device with her own hands!

        Which would be pretty damn cool.
      • No sarcasm at all. And no bad joke!
        I really do think it is cool that your wife is a machinist and a glass blower. Mine is an electrical engineer and a web master. I met her in college when we were both getting our BSEEs.

        And, on a related note, anyone crass enough to pick on someone's mastery of a foreign language is a jerk.
