Some fun for the Friday of a long weekend. And a true story to boot!
I had a job to do last Tuesday night that required the purchase of a few tools. As I was driving home from the store I took a look at the pile of stuff in the seat beside me and was quite amused – it all made perfect sense to me, but I wondered if anyone glancing into my car would deduce that these were all for the same job:
- a popsicle stick
- a small tub of plumbers’ putty
- a bucket
- a box of Crayola pastels
- a bicycle pump
- a sheet of coarse sandpaper
- a bottle of organic oil soap
- one additional item
What was the additional item? What was my chore last night?
(I’ve submitted this to Car Talk, so expect it to be on the radio show in five or ten years.)
I hope all you readers in the United States and Canada have a good Canada Day and/or Independence Day!
