For Personal Reasons,
– I wasn’t going to publicly share this –
However, I feel I have to share a portion of it to further prove a point…
(While out on my kayaking adventure…)
Having just kayaked the morning, we pulled up on a beach with a restaurant. Waiting for our food to be served… all of a sudden, a gentleman collapsed to the ground from a massive heart attack. Another gentleman and I immediately jumped in and performed CPR. He didn’t survive, leaving behind his screaming and very distraught wife.
So here’s the thing…
One minute I’m paddling and enjoying life’s experiences, watching the dolphins play, stingrays flying underwater, paddling through fields of jellyfish, and seeing many new things I’ve never experienced.
Within an instance… and at the opposite end of the spectrum
… a life ended.
This unfortunate incident further proves my point. It’s important to realize that you (me) were never promised tomorrow, let alone 5 minutes from now, so while you can, please go out and enjoy the time you do have.
This was a very harsh reminder of “Why I do what I do”
& Live for today, because you were never promised tomorrow.
I really enjoy my job, its been a great place! My co-workers have been such a great help with advice & assisting with any trouble spots I’ve come across.
The best part…..I get to buy tools! Lot’s of Manly Tools! Tools that make me feel like a man! Grrrr…..I’m a man!….with tools! ……..and then I go home …to my Swifter, sigh…back to reality.
It’s amazing what people find “attractive” or “stylish” when customizing their motorcycles. For example, the other day I was working on a motorcycle that had chrome dildo shaped handlebar grips.
So there I was, bent over and working on this motorcycle. Not thinking what was above me because it had never been a problem in the past, I stood up pretty fast and cracked the top of my head on something metal and hard. I went down on one knee, my face was cringed in pain and with tears in my eyes, I looked up…..and there, staring back at me was the hard chrome dildo.
Geez, I’m glad I didn’t have to go to the doctors or make a worker’s compensation claim….. “Guy knocks himself out with a dildo.”
The next day, someone had placed a few condoms on my workbench with a note, “Protect your head next time, lol.”….. sigh, the ribbing begins.
Rear turn signal on motorcycle broke off because someone had dropped the bike (wasn’t me)…..so I fixed it.
As you can see, my Motorcycle Technician course – 5 months of studying, homework, assignments, and tests…..has paid off!
My instructor will be so proud….bwahaha
I came across a vintage motorcycle show and this was pretty neat!
Anyone know what it’s called?
