I have a cousin that decided, half-way through college, that he was going to repair pinball machines for the rest of his life. KUDOS!! I wish I could tell my corporate job to stuff it, in deference to a project that consumed my energy and creativity. Oh, I like keeping the lights on, that's why.
Pinball players and repair-ers have the law to worry about in NY. Good thing my cousin is in Cali.
