Kevin had a doctor’s appointment last week. He’s been a patient of Rodde Cox since 2005, so they know each other pretty well. Usually, the medical stuff is dispatched fairly quickly, and then the discussion gets into some friendly banter. The appointment is usually the last one of the day, so after the medical treatment, the time is spent "swatting flies and telling lies."

This time, Dr. Cox asked if we’re still writing our Sweat Equity column. When Kevin said "yes," the conversation veered off into dumb things we’d done with tools.
