You know you drive an old truck if you find yourself looking in the rearview mirror every time you hear a strange noise. "OK, which part fell off this time."
The boss was telling us to not let perfection get in the way of getting the job done. He said, "Think about your first deer stand. It was not perfect but it got the job done. That is where I want your minds to be." So I turned over a five gallon bucket and asked if I could get paid piece-work. I am still employed but he was not amused.
I got to work alone today. I was content. The boss figured that I would not be spending half my time on my phone since it is a flip-phone and would not need adult supervision. He was right on both accounts.
I took a gallon of water and drank most of it in the five hours I worked. I was outside. High of eighty-four, sunny, no breeze, 75% humidity. Not brutal but not a picnic. I put 3/8 of a teaspoon of salt in my gallon of water to see if that helped with salt lost during sweating. Seemed to work OK. The amount of salt was low enough that it did not impact palatability. Key point, use non-iodized salt.
