Old Dog / New Tricks

I learned some valuable lessons today.

First:  If you have two means of elevating yourself to the level of a task, choose the one which takes you closer to your work.

Second:  The decision to put the REW / FWD button right under the natural resting place for one’s thumb on an electric screwdriver provides an opportunity for mishap.

Third: Reaching above one’s head to do a task creates an inadequate angle for efficiency.

Fourth: If no one hears you swear, it never happened.

Fifth: A bit driven through a finger will produce an enormous amount of blood.

It’s the nineteenth day of the fifty-sixth month of My Year Without Complaining.  Life continues.
