wax inspiration

my son wanted to a play his super mario brothers game on wii, but when i put it in it wouldnt read the disc. i took it out and looked at it, it was scratched up pretty good in one place. thinking hard about what i could do in that situation, i suddenly got an idea (i feel it came as inspiration) to melt some candle wax on the dvd and rub it in to fill the cracks. i went with it and polished away all the wax so it wouldnt ruin the laser reader inside the wii box, put it in and VOILA! the game worked =)
i love moments like that, it makes me feel "connected" if you know what i mean =)

and my son was so happy he jumped into my arms and gave me a big hug and was smiling and genuinely happy =)
