Crossed off my list

Raise your hand if you've ever used a jackhammer?

My husband seems to think that it is pretty much a waste of a human life if you've lived without ever having used a jackhammer.

So, at his insistence.....

Trust me, that thing jumps around, is heavy, makes a lot of noise, and is meant to be used only by hairy men in steel-toed boots.

But, while I can't exactly say it was high up there on my bucket list, I can now cross off: Use a jackhammer.

(Notice the safety goggles...)

(Notice the name of that thing - the "Wacker")

I can tell you aren't a real construction guy! no steel toe boots and no "earmuffs". Oh and maybe it is that smile mixed with gritted teeth? JAZ

Notice the cute puppy dog watching from a safe distance. Notice the industrial-strength SANDALS??? You're a nut, Barbara.

For me -- can't say I've ever yearned to wield a jackhammer. Now a chainsaw -- that's a different story!
