First of all this is my first post and I'm not great with the keyboard.
I've been watching this site for awhile and it has got me collecting strange things.I also have learned some new things to entertain my friends and family. Last Thanksgiving after dinner I brought out a bed of nails that I made but hadn't told my Wife about. I did get her to stand on my chest while I layed on it but she wouldn't come out side to see my son break cinder blocks on me. Next I did the stunt at our new years day party for friends. I bought a Mur Zibit and started showing it at our local indoor flea market. It was fun and I made beer money. In the spring I did the blockhead stunt at the flea market without showing or telling my Wife first. Now I'm in the dog house and banned from doing the blockhead in public. I've been married 33 years and don't want to scare her off now. Any advice on how to convince her I'm not getting crazy?

Sound like a letter for Dear Abby.

What interests has she developed, in that time? Do they all meet with your approval?

So you take the cinder blocks and the boy in to the lounge for her to see it in there!

that's that one sorted......





Doing block head in public..... just do it for her in private LOTS then and then she will get fed up with you and leave or you could just say you will never show her again as long as you are allowed to perform in public.

Your not mad .... are you?

My wife does not like blocke head at all (so I don't do it for her and warn her when I will be doing it in a show so that she can stay away if she wants.

But I will NEVER forget the look on her face when she truned up to see me perform at a festival ( I was not expecting her). She got there to my side show area just as I got the body bag out - what a picture her face was really funny! She was clearly not too impressed. But it was dead funny in hind sight! We laugh about it now .... well I do anyway!

All the best and you can always lie like someone elses said and have an affair.

You guys are so kind and sensitive. I don't know if the knife throwing site is for me or her. Relay my wife is great and has put up with all my interest and hobbies over the years.
She doesn't mind me showing the Zibit I bought from Doug.[by the way Doug makes a great Mur if you need one]And I think she is getting use to the bed of nails,I'm working on getting her to break the cinder blocks.

Get her to try the BON. It could change her perspective.

I think the issue here is trust and honesty rather than the actual stunt itself. You've indulged yourself in a world completely different and alien to her. Mostly in a covert style, if the sideshow were a woman (which it is.... in MANY ways), you'd be accused of cheating. Open up to her about your interests, AND the intentions around the interests. Then you can try to include her into it. If it's not her bag so be it, but at least you'd have been honest and on the level. I've already lost a marriage, happy with my second and it's all about be honest. (No offense to the women here) but ANY personal interest a man has will eventually p!$$ off their other half. The usual *femminine hygiene product* bag has the football and beer with the guys as their "interests"... at least YOUR interests are interesting!

No answers, just commiseration. Nipp put it best. It could be far, far worse things you've done to incur her ire. IMHO, BON + Blockhead + Zibit > blowing your savings on a sports car or having an affair.

Yes but the thing is Dr Mythsonian (great name by the way ... did you buy your Phd or did you do it properly and work for it?) .......you made me loose my track with your great name......

Oh yes.... the thing is ..... at least he's not got the BON, blockhead bits (presumably made by nipps) and the Zib in a trailer and hes towing it behind a sports car with an interesting looking young woman next to him when he goes to "gigs". Now that really would annoy the wife!



Nipps the paper in your area shoudl sign you up ... wonderful words of wisdom!
