The other morning as I was getting ready to leave for work, I noticed a construction worker on the scaffolding waving and trying to get my attention. He was pointing to me, to the very large saw in his hand and to our ceiling. I thought, huh....he's either:
a) trying to tell me he's going to come in and hack me to pieces with his very large saw
b) trying to tell me he's going to come in hack my ceiling to pieces with his very large saw
Since they let me leave without any type of trouble I figured it was option b. It was confirmed when I came home and found the ceiling in my entry way was replaced with a "temporary" one made of plywood and plastic. The construction foreman assured me that it "should" hold up from the big storms that were predicted for Seattle.
"Should," now there's a comforting term to hear from a construction worker.
