What can be more sturdy than nails? If you want to fix something, and you want it done right, a hammer and nails will do the job. A nail is so sturdy that there is a phrase for it 'Tough as Nails.' The statement is so true I can't imagine anyone not believing it.
Then I think of fingernails. My fingernails are the most brittle parts of my body. A week can't pass without me breaking one. They can't be counted on to complete any job with a 100% chance of survival. Basically, if you use them, they will break. If you don't, they will break.
It makes me wonder how the two are able to share a name. Who thought: 'Well my fingernails are so strong, I'd like to honor them by naming these little metal things after them.' Sign me up for those fingernails!
Anyway, I wish you all a happy non-nail breaking day!
A Dollar for my Thoughts
Blog updates mon- let's face it, I haven't kept to a schedule since I began this blog. How about I just say it updates when it does. :)
