there are a few things i'm not that bad at doing. i can beat box. i can talk steelers football. i can tell a pretty tall tale. see, i've got skills. and i didn't even mention that i can eat a whole box of cinnamon toast crunch in one sitting.
i've got mad skills. but carpentry isn't one of them.
which is why i'm fairly happy that i was able to build these shelves for jackson's room without a)losing a digit or b)destroying a load-bearing wall. i had to cut and sand and build and pre-treat and paint and hang them, which is a considerable amount of verbs with which i prefer to remain unfamiliar. however, i did it, and while they aren't perfect or even very good, i daresay that they are approaching the 'suitable' range, which is a major win for this beatboxing, cinnamon toast crunch-eating, tall tale-telling steelers fan.
