I hate him...I F'n hate him.

Today I've been working on cleaning and re-organizing my basement, a long-overdue task.

In the process, I've gathered up numerous tools, including a few socket wrenches and several dozen sockets. Taking the mis-matched socket sets out on my deck, I sat down and meticulously sorted them, dividing them between inch and metric pattern and 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" drives. I then put each sub-set in order from smallest to largest so I could figure out what was missing and assemble a few complete sets.

I had the little sockets lined up nicely on the top of my toolbox, all separated and put in order like squads of little soldiers, and I was just getting ready to start putting them in the trays and a couple of bags (for the spares) when Murphy ran up with a Kong toy and deliberately threw it down on top of the tool box, scattering sockets everywhere. All that sorting...wiped out.

I hate him. I really do.

"Heh. You can play with me, or I'll just play with you."

  4. @ Simple & Rev. Paul: No, it was just Murphy, but if Crazy Joe Biden came over and scattered my sockets all over the deck like Murphy did, I'd be knocking him out like Joe Louis did Max Schmeling in 1938.

  5. Ah, I don't have anybody to blame for my disorganization. So you got that anyway. I'm looking for a trim panel and AM radio for a 71-73 Mustang. I thought it was here.

  7. Rule 1 of cleaning and organizing:
    Always play with dog first. Get dog good and tired; then it will sleep through most quiet cleaning tasks. If you want dog to chill about the vacuum cleaner, provide plenty of exercise, then give two Benadryl in a blob of peanut butter, and wait an hour or so.

  11. @ Rick: Yeah, I know. And I won't say that we didn't go play in his run for a few minutes, but still...I about went cross-eyed trying to read and re-sort all of those damned sockets.
