The funny thing is that I've done a MBTI personality quiz and got the result INTJ which is also called The Inventor. :D

That's... it took me quite a while to get this, but I think it is fantastic how you've managed to portray the obsession there.

The way I see it is that the person, the inventor, is obsessed with its creation and has no time for their wife, girlfriend or whatever. They say the second line, and the third line emphasises the fact that the inventor is so absorbed it doesn't fully register or they don't even care...

Quite a profound piece. :nod:

You've got it exactly! I wouldn't call this profound (^^) but I did want it to be subtle - only suggesting the obsession. It's always a fine line I suppose, between suggesting stuff and making a satisfying story, and leaving the reader utterly puzzled. *thinks about "Life's Full of Disappointments" and blushes* ^_^
