I got a new drug

Yesterday I learned a new trade.

That's right.  I can now use a jig saw.

You're impressed.  I can tell.

One things for sure, I was impressed.  It scared me a little bit at first.  There may have been some girly screaming on my part. It doesn't hurt that the Captain loves to torment me.  He claims it's part of his job.  I have tried firing him over and over but it hasn't stuck.

He didn't let me cut any of the important stuff out.  I think at the end of the day he really didn't trust that I would do a good job.  To be honest, I probably wouldn't have done as great a job as he did, but the learning curve was completely different.  He has done this before.  I should have gotten points just for that.  But even so, there was a rush learning how to do it.  What a high!

Anyway, I'm sharing because from now on when we have company everyone gets to see me run the saw.  When you come to visit you'll get a cocktail before I rush you out to the garage and show you how I saw.  Cuz that's how we roll.

What's next?  Chain saw here I come.

Go YOU! Learning how to use "man" tools is one of the coolest things. However, just remember to be extra careful. "Man" tools are designed for men who generally can handle the power. I almost chopped my leg off with a circular saw when it got away from me one day.
