Death (almost) by Garage Door

Good advice on this site. I just went out into our garage to take the car over for an oil change. When I hit the button for the garage door to open it the spring broke and it came crashing down. A garage door weighs 300 - 400 pounds so if I had been under it I would have been killed. A small child would certainly be killed. Just letting you know this happened so you can be careful. The thing was just a few feet away from me and believe me it scared the you-know-what out of me.

I am different

OK, I have decided to come out and admit it. I am different. I have decided to stop hiding it and come clean. The thing is, being different does not bother me at all. The fact that I have no tattoos, no body piercings, and use no drugs, don't drink lattes, wear my baseball hats with the bill facing forward, and call anyone with grey hair sir does make me different from the rest of the population but hey, we should celebrate our differences. Right? For a long time I thought this was something to hide but have decided to come out and tell the world. So there, I feel a lot better now.
