#029 robin the robin


"Robin is more than a little obsessed with his wood-burning stove. All summer he sits on his sofa longing for the temperature to drop down low enough so that he can start setting light to his carefully arranged log pile. His wife is starting to get concerned that his self-hewn kindling fixation might have gone too far, especially now he’s shown an interest in ripping out the cooker. A quick check on his search history online reveals he has plans for a 'build you own' brick over in the kitchen. Fortunately for all involved, his wife’s favourite foods are best served on crispy crust, so she might as well just buy him a new axe and start practicing her kneading. Who knew robin’s ate pizza?"
