Last Thursday when I came home from work, I noticed a package outside my front door. I went out to pick it up and almost wrenched my back. The package was the size of a large Cheerios cereal box, only a bit longer, and contained a block of tool steel weighing 117 pounds.
I understand that my son needs such things for his business. But what a nasty burden for the UPS man to lug up the stairs to my front door! The warning tape on the package seemed like a comic understatement.
