I’ve decided to count down to Thinksgiving, and take a moment each day to think about things I’m thankful for.
Number Seven: Power Tools.
Heck yeah! Every couple of months, when my neighbors aren’t looking, I get out the power tools and turn them on. If you try, you can use lots of things all at once – which may be why my neighbors come running over when I use them. This weekend I’m going to fire up the chipper, turn it on its side, and then fire up the leaf blower and blow all the leaves into the chipper, to their doom. Anything caught near the chipper’s event horizon will be sucked in and shredded to mulch – which may actually be what a Black Hole is doing, for that matter. Or should I say, to that matter.
So, I’m thankful that gasoline hasn’t been outlawed yet (you laugh?), that more than just cars go vroom all low and growly like, and that I have great neighbors who have thus far prevented me from cutting off too many digits while juggling the Sawzalls.
