Today, I was lost in a spreadsheet world. I am discovering that spreadsheets are like cleaning and rearranging the house.
A complete thrill!
For about 30 minutes, I worked in complete silence and I had tuned out the world, including the electrician that was on a ladder 2 feet from me.
He made a loud noise that sucked me back to reality in time to see a small metal part fly out of the ceiling and straight towards me. It landed in my tiny water cup.
For some reason, I found this to be an awesome skill. Involuntarily the word
came flying out of my mouth, at loud volume.
This startled the electrician and he grabbed the top of the ladder as his eyes widened.
I finished with "great shot!"
My 'awe' was contagious and he chuckled and smiled with true pleasure as he excitedly said, "did it go in?"
"Yes!" I held it up for him to see.
He went back to work and I quietly wandered back into my spreadsheet forest.
It was a great day of Harlem Globetrotter Skills and spreadsheet narcotics.
