When welding isn't an option
ME: If you were going to make flip-flops out of newsprint how would you do it?
ME: I want to make them.
HIM: Of course you do.
ME: Seriously? What would you do?
HIM: We'll I'd probably glue a bunch of papers together with a non-water-based glue, wait for it to dry and cut it out with a saw.
ME: What about Mod Podge? Would that work?
HIM: What's Mod Podge?
ME: It's a water-based glue people use to shellac magazines to tabletops.
HIM: Did I not just say something about not using water-based glue?
ME: Yes, but I wasn't really clear on why?
HIM: You go outside in them and they'll disintegrate.
ME: I'm making flip-flops out of newsprint. Longevity isn't important.
HIM: Of course not. ... I'd say Mod Podge will probably work then.
