Babies and Tools

Katie loves tools. I think they’re her favorite thing, except maybe Veggie Tales. Right now she’s playing with my brand new Cable Tacker. Don’t worry, it’s still in the Lucite they encase everything in these days. What’s with that stuff? It used to be just little things, like a $15 Walkman, would be put into that molded plastic stuff that you need a blowtorch to remove. Now everything’s in it, it seems- larger and larger items all the time. It’s very annoying. I hate that stuff. Anti-theft I guess. That means I hate thieves even more for making it necessary to encase all commercial items from $5 to $500 in inconveniently large packages of impenetrable Astronaut-grade polycarbons.

The next question you may be asking is, what do I need a cable tacker for? And the answer, naturally, is that I have cable to tack. Not right now, maybe, but eventually. Everyone needs a cable tacker. What, you say you don’t have one? Well I say to you, RUN, don’t walk, to your local Lowe’s and buy one now. You never know when you’re going to be hit with a cable-tacking emergency.
