Scotty’s Greenhouse Rebuttal

Posted by Daniel on Tuesday, June 13, 2006

Provided by Scott as a comment on the previous post:

Lesson #1: Always make sure that Steve knows what Daniel is up to…hence the question, "Where is Steve?"

Lesson #2: Never tell Daniel you have a free day until you know what his "mountain for the day" is. (Steve, on the other hand, can be trusted to know days in advance.)

Lesson #3: never postpone a friend when a stranger says, "Sure, I'll come over and help you balance the four carburetors on that 1965 Corvair." It's Monday evening and I'm still doing it by myself with a stethoscope…but the fumes really make it all worth while.

Lesson #4: When the instructions recommend gloves…take it as a message from God himself.

Lesson #5: When building a greenhouse, find someone much taller than the completed structure (Steve), someone small enough to become winded while running laps within the structure (Daniel), and someone to giggle at the other two from the sidelines.

Lesson #6: Enjoy the time you have with friends, no matter what you are doing. The three of us can assemble a greenhouse, play cards, or sit at a bar making fun of the kids they now allow to enter…and each event proves to be filled with the best times of our lives.

Okay, and the last lesson – Assume there will be missing parts so that you can plan for "customizations" as you go.
