MOTH had a 'close encounter' with a power tool this weekend. It's not the first time & it certainly won't be the last. He did give himself quite a fright & so needed to sit down for a couple of hours after & recuperate with a beer or 4 in front of the telly watching his beloved Demons thrash my mob The Powerless (oops, Port Power) boys!
He does have a chequered history with all things mechanical. The most interesting being the afternoon he decided to clear the grass from the blades of the lawnmower, but omitting one small point - the mower was still going at the time! He said (as I was driving like a maniac to get him to St. Andrew's A&E), 'Mills, that was awesome, it was like watching my whole hand actually explode!'. He wasn't so intruiged though, after 4 hours of microsurgery & weeks of hand rehab. to get his fingers functioning again.
Researchers using brain scans have discovered that when straight men looked at pictures of women in bikinis, areas of the brain that normally light up in anticipation of using tools, like spanners, hammers, sanders & chainsaws were activated. I can only assume that some of these stray thoughts were crossing MOTH's brain yesterday as he grappled with the circular saw, but when questioned he, of course, totally denied any such thing!
