Ok, so we’re driving along and we see this thing (below) on the side of the road. Knowing
it will make an incredible table base, we pull over and we buy it. The guy says “I’ll get my
fork lift and put it on your trailer.”
So, what is it about machinery that attracts guys like a magnet and causes them to stand
around watching as if Something Really Amazing were going to happen ?
Not that I’m complaining. It would have been way less than amazing to load it ourselves.
It’s the same thing with cars.
I guess there’s just something about the power of an engine and its ability to make things
happen that draws those fellas in and keeps them looking instead of, like me, saying
“uh huh” as I walk on by.
