The Devil's Workshop

As many of you know, I recently suffered the first worksite injury at the Banyan Inn construction site.  Whilst carrying a 16' treated 2x6 down a set of stairs, I stepped down and landed on my ankle.  As I heard the flesh-tearing sound of my ankle turning over and was falling to the ground, I had several thoughts.  First, this was going to hurt.  Bad.  Second, I was pissed at myself for allowing this to happen just as I was in a great run of deck building.  But most importantly, I was worrying about how much construction time this was going to cost me during my rehabilitation.  When I finally hit the ground, I was fucking pissed.

So not being able to walk really put a damper on my Banyan Inn plans.  Sidelined, I limp-paced the hut in frustration.  I couldn't believe that I was going to be forced to waste a week of good weath…
