So, where was I yesterday? I spent the whole day demoing a tool my company uses for a government client.

When we got there, I whipped out my tool and set it up for everyone to see. There were lots of other people there showing off their tools. Some of the tools were pretty impressive yet some of the other tools we just lacking. Its not all about size or complexity! And all these government people kept stopping by to ask about our tools. And talk about tools of their own. Some just wanted to talk about random stuff and I'm thinking, "I'm here to show you my tool. Look at my tool, damnit!" Luckily, I wasn't one of the guest speakers - they had to show their tools off in front of a crowded room of tool-seekers. They were up there for, like, a half and hour running through the features of their tool and showing everyone exactly how it worked. They musta been tired!

After a full day of tool action, I put mine away, went home and crashed. There's only so much you can do with your tool on any given day.

Wow. I never new the government was into "tools" that much. I mean it's bad enough to have a demo for them. But then to make some poor soles get up and explain how to use them? For half an hour?! Either the government is very stupid or just plain mean.

But you didn't get to actually use your tool?

That was vile and wrong and completely hysterical. You totally need to write to Penthouse Forums for their upcoming Government Sluts issue.

Maybe I'm just a sick puppy, but the things swirling around my head to commment about was just cracking me up. Don't want to offend anyone so I just leave it my own sick head. (Laughing).

I hope some good comes from your tool day though.

Wow, the government holding tools. I bet that's the first time a tool has held a tool.

Junk? Tool? What's next Chris? You so silly!

So, were any of those tools outstanding? Or were they just your average 'Joe Blow' kinda tools?

So this means that if I want to see your tool, it's on the GSA schedule?
