I think Nate may have inherited a love for tools from me

We were at The Home Depot today, getting more things for the basement reno. We had Nate with us this time, and although he wasn't all that excited to go initially, he quickly warmed to the place once we got there.

Some things he wanted to buy:

  • various tape measures - 'for measuring things'
  • a rubber hammer - 'so I can bang on things'
  • some small screw drivers - 'cause they are made for little boys like me and they're cute'
  • 2 packs of 10 carpenter pencils - 'one for you and one for me'
  • a chisel - I have no idea why

This could be a good thing, I could think of worse things to do than go to The Home Depot with Nate for a few hours.

So, did he get any of the above? Hopefully not the chisel but how can you deny the allure of cute little boy screwdrivers?!

I caved on a tape measure, and we took home one pack of carpenter pencils. We went back today to get some plumbing fittings and a table saw, he didn't even complain once!

trips to home hardware were always a good time in my childhood for some reason.

you may have to investigate the 'chisel' thing though?

now if you could only set him on the Wega leak...

Jesse, it's funny you should say that, but I too have fond memories of trips to the hardware store when I was a kid. That and the kitchen utensil place.
