One thing about our home projects - once finished the tools tend to hang around for awhile longer. I was sitting at my desk working with Luke sitting nearby watching a show and John’s tools still spread out from the Quest for Comfort project. Luke asked for pretzels so I went downstairs into the kitchen to grab them. When I came back up, the first thing I saw (no pun intended) was this:
“Were you playing with that?” I asked him.
“Luke, that’s a saw. Don’t ever play with a saw. That is very dangerous.”
“I wasn’t playing with it,” he replied matter-of-factly.
“Well, what’s it doing on the floor?”
“I was cutting the blue hair.”
“What blue hair?”
Luke pointed down at the very ugly, very irreplaceable because it would be too expensive and too disruptive, blue shag carpeting.
“You were cutting the carpet with the saw?”
“Yes. It’s very hairy.”
John – can you please put your tools away now?
Sunday afternoon in Charlotte.
