A Funny Thing Happened At The Shop…
I happened to have a culvert pipe laying outside, inviting me to cut it into functional lengths. The pipe I’m using is coated in a tar paper wrap and is known to burst into flame on occasion while being cut with the acetylene torch.
Wearing my goggles, to protect my eyes (safety first), I began to cut. Through the goggles I noticed the flame erupt, but continued to cut as I am used to this happening. However, after another minute I began to notice a smell…other that that of hot steel and burning tar…it was that of singed hair. I stopped and looked at my arms…nope, they were fine. Then it occurred to me…the smell was lingering in my nose…ruh roh!
Yep…the mustache was lacking…the entire left side. Oh well…it must have been time for a change
PS – For those inquiring, my son’s lost tooth was not related to the incident in the shop. He lost it “naturally” last night while brushing his teeth 🙂
