Re: Aquarium Related Injuries
Shireen's post reminded me of the issues I have with carrying so many
buckets of water every week and my back pain from that. I've actually
thought of taking a tank or two down in order to make things easier.
It's kind of goofy because I have a Python somewhere around here but
refuse to use it. Maybe I fear technology <g>. In the early eighties,
I had a neighbor who bought his wife a microwave and she refused to
let him bring it in the house because she feared radiation. That
brand new microwave sat outside on the porch and rusted. So my Python
phobia is kind of like that.
I used to drive heavy equipment. One day my daughter and I were
driving along in the car and she saw a semi (full of aquatic plants
of course) going down the road. She said, "Mom, you could do that". I
told her that it paid pretty well and that I could do that, but I
wouldn't want that job for all the money in the world. When she asked
why, I told her that truck drivers have a high incidence of
hemmoroids. She was kind of small and didn't quite get the humor in
that. A few years later, we're driving down the highway and she sees
a semi truck and comments that she could do that and it probably paid
pretty well. Then she paused and and in a very serious voice said,
"No, I don't think I would want that job. They have hemmoroids. I
think I'll go to college and become a nurse instead."
So, with that in mind, please complete the following sentence:
I wouldn't want to be an aquarium hobbyist because they have _________.
