Things That Go "Boom"

The following email exchange occurs after I get a request asking me to act as an exercise controller for an active shooter drill on campus that will involve the county sheriff and three police departments. I forward it to Sean*.

Me:  I suppose you'd like to come along...they're going to blow the hell out of the old dorms on Main Street. 

He:  Helllllll Yes.

What is it about men and "things that go boom"? Power saws, tractors, leaf blowers...the loudest thing I own is my bread machine. (Well, the vacuum, but I use that so seldom it hardly counts.)

I let Brian pick out our vacuum cleaner. It has lots of settings and attachments, so he's the one that runs it. I'm not sure what it is about men and gadgets, but its the same thing with men and stuff blowing up.

My BIL just moved into a retirement center. He did get rid of his power saws, etc., but he took his tool box (pliers, screwdrivers, etc.) and one of the plastic sets of drawers full of lock washers and other odd bits. Men and gadgets, indeed.

Men, power tools, blowing up things (real or otherwise)...sounds like fun!
