    TOP TEN REASONS YOU MIGHT BE A WOODWORKER

    Not sure if this has been posted here before or not, but I saw this on a T-Shirt: Anyone have any other reasons?


    "TOP TEN REASONS YOU MIGHT BE A WOODWORKER"


    10. YOU BLOW YOUR NOSE AND SAWDUST COMES OUT.

    9. MISSING A DIGIT (CAN ONLY COUNT TO 9).

    8. NO LINT IN THE BELLY BUTTON, JUST WOOD CHIPS.

    7. YOU SMELL LIKE A HAMSTER CAGE.

    6. YOUR FINGERNAILS ARE A NICE SHADE OF MAHOGANY.

    5. YOU NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY BECAUSE YOU MIGHT NEED IT.

    4. YOUR VEHICLE HAS NEVER SEEN THE INSIDE OF A GARAGE.

    3. YOU'VE GOT SAWDUST IN LOW PLACES.

    2. THE SMELL OF SAWDUST TAKES YOU TO YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

    1. YOU NEVER LET YOUR SPOUSE BUY FURNITURE BECAUSE YOU CAN "MAKE IT."

    9 out of 10 for me.

    Fortunately, the missing finger is the one I don't qualify for.
