I remember my younger days when I would work out, shower then immediately go to a night club. I wanted everyone to marvel at my swollen chest and biceps as I sauntered through the door. If at all possible, I wanted every guy in the place to be intimidated and every girl to want my body.

Yeah – uh huh. I’ll go straight to a tangent and say that someone told me I was a “Real Piece of Work”. It took me years to figure out what he was meant. ;)

I remember wearing a Harley T-shirt because I thought I looked really cool and a little dangerous. Yeah that worked well until a really pretty girl asked me if I had a Harely… So – I lied ‘YEP’. Then she asked me what model. Uhhhh.

Those are just examples from my youth but I found that I kept on pulling lesser, but slightly more believable shenanigans throughout my life as I tried to impress people with a veneer of words or appearance. With that being said – I have just made this Mark-ism relevant to LumberJocks. Get it – Veneer?

Yeah I know. I’m a real Piece of Work.

Like before, I sincerely apologize. :)

The kind you ride on baby.

Bam.

Of course I told the truth, ..... and went home alone a lot.

” All tip and no iceberg ” Paul Keating, Aust. prime minister, speaking about the opposition leader.

” Unrepresentative swill ” Paul Keating again referring to the Senate. I just threw that one in, Keating was a gold mine for that sort of thing.

Geaux, That’s Awesome! Where were you when I was 17?

Monte, I wasn’t having much luck myself. You can only spread the bull so far. The thicker you lay it on the less it covers. (Mark-ism 244) You definitely did things right.

Tex, I need to catch up on some Keating. Thank you sir.

Keating again, about the opposition leader again … ” He is a shiver looking for a backbone to run up! “
