    You get some wood you've never had before (Apple, Cherry, Locust, etc) and plan an afternoon or evening around burning it to enjoy it's special characteristics.

    Your side of the garage is full of wood; Your wife's side has just enough room to get her little car in.

    If you can't remember last night's movie, but think back fondly to the glow and burn of that applewood fire last month.

    At a wine tasting you describe the Cabarnet as "Oaky with just a hint of creosote.".

    You know what the word 'gassification' means.
    Suburban neighbors smell your wood smoke at 5am and consider dialing 911.
    You watch the paper for wood smoke complaints and develop stealth burning techniques.
    Your wife rolls her eyes in the car whenever she sees you scanning for 'recycle' wood.
    She is mortified when you stop and "pick up someone elses trash".
    The first thing you examine while driving in a new neighborhood are the chimneys.
    You wonder how you ever got by without a wood stove.

    I don't know. If they are sharing their $200 wine I don't want to discourage them.

    When you tell your 2 y/o to go check on the fire and she knows exactly what that means and reports back, "the meedle on the white" or "da da fire big".
    Better yet when she tells me that "da da you fire need more wood"

    Your wife makes you report to the laundry to remove wood chips from your pockets before she will do the wash.

    Hah! I've got wheelbarrow paths through the kitchen and livingroom! Priorities- large stack of wood next to the stove, or pretty carpet. Plus, it was the wifes idea.
