Today is Worship of Tools Day



Tile Saw

When : Always March 11th : HolidayInsights.com

There are few things that the male population worships more than his tools. To some, a tool is a natural extension of their arm or other appendages. So, Worship of Tools Day is a logical day of celebration. And, it’s definitely a guy thing. Please note however, there are more than a few ladies who love to work with their hands, and find today to be an important holiday.

Song of the Day: If I  Had a Hammer

Mr Husband and I have a ton of tools between us, but we rarely use them.  I have my very own drill, saw and sander. Used to use them too. Not anymore.  Anything needs doing? Call Mr. Martin – he can do anything. He installed the customized DVD shelves in the closet that hub-mans collection outgrew over the years.

It’s amazing what men can do with tools. I can hang a picture, maybe a shelf or 2 but cut tile with a saw? I don’t think so. I gave that thing in the picture above a wide berth. The workman packed it up and took it away today. I guess they are finished. Paint and fixtures next on the agenda.

Man started making tools about 2 million years ago. And have been fascinated with them ever since. Tools and sex obviously go together. Though, why this woman is wearing ballet shoes is a mystery. Some part of the symbolism I’m missing. I’ll have to ask Hub-man what that means to him.

Researchers are constantly debating the chicken or the egg conundrum when it comes to tools. It seems the development of language skills and tools have paralleled through history. The same part of the brain is used for both skills. That brings us from the Neanderthal clubbing his women and dragging her off  to his cave to the modern man. “Hey baby, hop in my fancy Corvette and I’ll drag you off to my cave.”
