Aluminum Gets Under Your Skin.and a Rivet runs through it!
Literally. After a recent nightmare session of working on the underbelly, my right knee developed a huge swelling. Turns out it was a small shard of aluminum that had worked it's way under my skin. It made me realize how much aluminum, and particularly RIVETS have become a part of my life!
Rivets seem to not only occupy a great deal of my day, they haunt me everywhere I go! The other day, experiencing an uncomfortable feeling in my shoe, there was a RIVET! After spending the day under the trailer redoing belly skin, I came home to brush my hair only to discover a part of a RIVET! One the floor of my car, and stuck to the bottom of my shoes...RIVETS! RIVETS, everywhere!
It made me realize how much the RIVET is actually a part of American life, film, books, and history. Consider for example:
A Rivet Runs Through It
Cry Me a Rivet
The Bridge Over The Rivet Kwai
George Washington Crosses the Delaware Rivet
Kermit The Frog...Rivet! Rivet!
These are just a few of the riveting examples! The kids in the neighborhood call me "Pop Rivet". Tonight I will dream of Rivets. I guess I am just "stuck" with this!
