Big old scissors that I tucked into my briefcase as I left a former job, just because they fit my hand so well. (Boss said it was OK.)

I’ve just taken up the carpet in the house my parents bought when I was a baby. Lo and behold! a painted wooden floor, decorated with bright splatters of orange paint. Now I do like painted floors, but you couldn’t pay me enough to keep this around! It will be refinished soon, you betcha! No wonder my parents carpeted it.
