My collection has gotten too big. I have some displayed on the bathroom sink. Much more under the sink and the rest is hidden about the house. I have been searching for a nice piece of inexpensive furniture I could keep in my bedroom as a display case. I finally found this in IKEA as I remember it was less than $150.

Nice piece Barry.  However, you still need more display space!

I thought it would hold all my stuff and then have room. It holds only 3/4 of my gear. Now what?
1. Sell some stuff
2. Get another display case? (it took 3 years to convince my wife to put this in the bedroom)
3. Get another wife?
4 Buy a bigger house?

Now is the time for an underground bunker......protect your real valuables and keep the unwanted out......

Dave it took me two years to get SWMBO to agree to a new piece of Furniture in our bedroom. Before she will OK another piece I might have better luck having her approve my getting a mistress and keep ing my extras at her house.

Ok. Barry.  Here's what you need to do.  Clearly you need more space.  And since we already know the wife likes the piece as she approved of the design, you now need to point out to her that the piece sitting there against the wall is too small for the space and that a second one exactly like it is needed to hide that very ugly electrical outlet peaking out from behind that one.  You can't just slide it over because then the whole Feng Shui thing would be thrown off.  They need to be centered and the only way to fix this glaring issue is a second one to go side by side with the first.  There is clearly more than enough room on that wall.  You just can't live with having to see that dang electrical outlet every single day.  Problem solved.

If and only if the mistress can properly shave you with a straight razor then you have a dilemma.

I was waiting in a store in the customer service department with full of people in silence when I read that and I couldn't hold myself to laugh pretty loud. It was really funny!
