Having the tools ready for the job.

Sean says he looked pretty good in front of the guys yesterday. They moved a gigantic heavy server rack and to do so they had to take its insides out. He popped in to the house and came out with a socket set and crescent wrench. They needed to do something else, in he went and out came the screwdriver set. None new, all items present and organised.

"Guys just like to have the right tools in front of other guys."
"Oh, you might think that guys like to have the right tools in front of other guys but you haven't seen smug until you've seen a feminist who's producing the right tools in front of other feminists. The ideological background gives it extra weight."

(I'm having a colposcopy today. Expecting good news but some kind of deep terror lurking nonetheless... later as good as possible at this stage, got to wait for the smear result to be sure).

Bloody colposcopies (sp?), I've had many. The staff at the hospital are so nice, but it always sucks.

Good luck.

What? You don't like tools Alan? Good grief! But your secret's safe with me and my seventeen readers, we aren't the mocking kind.

No, not really. Becky does all of that stuff around the house.

I'm good at fiddling with gadgets though (as the gusts of mocking laughter went exponential).

Yeah. I'd like to have the right tools ready to hand in front of Rebecca.
