Difficult Decisions

C-Man: Do you have a preference for where I should solder?

Me: I don’t know what soldering is.

C-Man: (something something something about lead and a source of heat)

Me: Then my preference would be for outside-

C-Man: I can’t do that, because I need to be able to see it well and my fingers are going to be up close to it.

Me: But as I was about to say, you may not be able to do that because it’s gotten dark. But couldn’t something catch on fire and isn’t it dangerous to inhale lead fumes?

C-Man: Yes to the first, and yes to the second.

Me: Then I don’t know what to tell you.

C-Man: That’s a very honest answer.
