"Concrete houses built by Thomas Edisonâ€¦"
That's what he said (he's a pilot, my pilot actually).
It's late, weâ€™re standing on a dimly lit, empty tarmac in a small airfield outside Seville, Spain.
"Edison's epic failure nobody remembers. We remember the lightbulb, the phonograph, but why not his concrete houses?"
I watch him closely. I notice his combat watch, it glows in the darkness around us as he speaks with his hands (thick Castilian accent).
"I tell you. Because he got back up. Kept working, never let shame or hate get inside him..."
I finally interrupt, "Are you an inventor?"
"No, no," he smiles. "I am a father, a son, a husband. I'm a captain in the FFAA. I want to do well, that's all. You understand, yes?"
