After spotting Dad & Jessica one aisle over at Home Depot…
Me: Pssst…Family! Look over here!
Dad & Jessica: Heeeey! What are you up to?
Me: Oh, not much. Just in the market for a compound miter saw.
Dad: Atta girl! I’ll help you pick one out.
Jessica: (Looking confused and anxious)
Dad: Here, I have this one and I really like it.
Me: I love it and need it in my life. Load ‘er up, pops!
Jessica: (Apparently concerned for my sanity)…Cara! Don’t do it…As your older sister, I feel we need to talk about this. I mean, you could buy a pair of shoes for that amount of money. A really nice pair of shoes.
Me: I don’t want a pair of shoes. Miter saw beats shoes.
Jessica: No shoes? A saw?…I definitely didn’t get the handy gene.
