Where to start? Since I referenced the show “Breaking Bad” in the title, I’ll proceed in a fashion similar to it.
Start with the opening graphic teaser:
[Insert Erik’s Theme Music and Montage here]
And, back to the beginning of the story.
We are in the process of adding a new artist room at the tattoo studio. Each of the room is kind of a fishbowl, in the sense that there are a lot of large windows to see in and out of in each room. Because we like openness. And light.
I went to install the 1/4″ thick 4′ by 8′ sheet of glass in the new opening before the studio opened today.
Things went bad.
I dinged the corner of the glass pane on the tile floor as I was maneuvering it into place. And I heard that sound you hear in the movies of a glass window slowly cracking before you get blown out into space. Shit.
Instinctively I looked down and away at the right moment as the entire pane shattered. In my hands. Luckily it was tempered safety glass. If it hadn’t been, I probably wouldn’t be typing this story today.
I have all these medical supplies at the studio with which to clean and bandage my wounds. Which is good. But of course, I decided to stick a crap-load of small Band-Aids all over myself instead.
I wish I had some pink Hello Kitty! Band-Aids. I’ll have to remedy that.
Now I have a lot of tiny glass pieces to use in a project or two.
Luckily I have three more panes of glass in storage. Although I’m a little shy about installing it myself. Even though I’ve done it before several times. Successfully.
But I’ll probably attempt to install another pane tonight.
While someone is here with me.
Just in case.
Until next time...
