Topic tags/keywords: humor question

A few days ago, I was stuck in terrible traffic on my way to work. I spent way too much time behind a car with a bumper sticker saying “I’d Rather Be Flying”. In an attempt to keep my sanity, I tried to think of some such phrases related to woodworking.

I came up with a few:
  • I’d Rather Be Boring
  • I’d Rather Be Plowing A Dado

There were a number of other ones that are probably not appropriate for this forum. Anyway, what would you like to have on your bumper?

Actually, I am a licensed pilot and “I’d Rather Be Flying” is fine with me. I’ll refine that a bit and note that I am also licensed to fly gliders (i.e. non-powered flight). That is the ultimate. Unfortunately, I have not been able to do that since leaving California in ‘95.
