    Okay, I'm back from Home Depot. As soon at the rain stops, I can break out the sawsall and get to work on this project.

    Soon, I will finally have the downforce I need to set the new lap time record at Motorsports Ranch.

    You missed the one that says #functionoverform

    If he didn't live so far away I'd hire him to box blade my driveway, now that would be function over form.
