Heads or Tails


Today's theme for Heads or Tails is "tool." So, I went over to dictionary.com and looked up the definitions, as there are many.

The first one I related to was definition #6:
(noun) a person manipulated by another for the latter's own ends

But, as it turns out, I wrote about that in this post on Sunday, just by a different name.


So, the next defnition that struck me was #13:
(verb) to drive (a vehicle)

I tooled around town in my car last night trying to find some empty boxes and looking at apartment complexes and neighborhoods. Not very exciting.


Then there is definition number #1:
(noun) an implement, esp. one held in the hand, as a hammer, saw, or file, for performing or facilitating mechanical operations.

I used tools today, a drill and a screwdriver, in preparing one of the bedrooms for painting. I need to purchase more tools for this project including painter's tape, paintbrushes, paint rollers, and the paint itself. I'm hoping to start the actual painting this Thursday or Friday. I'll be sharing before and after pictures of my room makeovers.


And that is all I have for the topic "tool" this week.

I've painted so many times. And love it. Have fun. Don't forget the single edged razor blade...that is a necessity for me and painting/windows!

I wish I could get in the mood to paint. My rooms certainly need it.

I had no idea tool had a meaning to drive.
