...if you got a new colleague and he´s got a slight accent. To my question of his origins he replied he is from Poland. I then told him I like polish paper kits like maly modelarze and he started to tell childhood memories how 50 years ago, he regularly walked to the newspaper stand around the corner to get the latest issue of it. That dreamy expression on his face never leaving him when telling. Yes, he was an avid paper modeler as a kid!

...when you get stopped in Wal-Mart by complete strangers who want to know what you are currently building.

(Happened twice. Apparently, they saw me at the Army Heritage Day event here in Carlisle. Think it freaked my husband out more than me, lol!)

You must be a paper modeller if you can look at Miss World and see nothing but cones, squares and such . You must also be a paper modeller if your wife envies then way you look at conical sections.
