Ben Green-Hi Guys,

I wanted to know how you guys deal with the amount of excess attention from the ladies the hobby brings? It has started to become a real problem lately, I’m just fighting them off! I tell them that I am happily married, but it’s in one ear and out the other … They keep telling me how they’d like to have their wicked way with me across my table saw, ..and I’m like … Girl ..No! .. do you KNOW how dangerous that would be!? .. not to mention the issues it could cause with rust on the cast surface.
And don’t get me started on what happens when I whip out my domino!!

I’m at tipping point I tell you. It’s exhausting. The only upside is that it only seems to happen in my dreams when I’m asleep, but I wanted to know if you suffer from the same thing and how to deal with it?

Love the show, keep up the good work.

Thanks, Ben
