Does this ever happen to you?

I had a free afternoon the other day. A friend had dropped off an ATV for me to work on, but there was no urgency and it could wait a day or two. The missus was out golfing with the ladies, so the honey-do job jar had the lid on – at least temporarily. And none of my own projects were time critical.

The tank on the Harley was down to fumes so I thought I’d take advantage and run into town to fill it up and perhaps stop at Timmy’s for a coffee or an iced capp. There are usually a few bikes in the parking lot so I might also have some company and friendly conversation at the same time.

So that’s what I did – gassed up, got a coffee, chatted in the parking lot. But then, because it was such a beautiful day, I decided to take the long way home. Which became the longer way… and then the longest way.

And I can’t decide whether it was mission accomplished or not.

  1. Mission accomplished or not? I'd suggest you try again, and decide after ;-)

  2. It may take several more tests. Maybe even on a daily basis for a month. Then you'll have enough samples to determine if further tests are warranted.

  3. I think if the honey-do jar lid stayed closed it was mission accomplished!!

  5. I was trying to hold off commenting but it was mission impossible as was going home to work on a sunny day when procrastination was an option.

  6. Summer is so much fun there are science experiments like that to undertake. Keep on testing as the Honey-do jar will wait.....
