Short Story - Homerun and Nails in A Smashing Good Time

Homerun and Nails in A Smashing Good Time
words: 1280

Glass exploded, impacting the interior of the car and driver. The woman screamed struggling to simultaneously scramble away and undo the seat belt. Dots of blood began forming on her arms and face from the glass. Homerun used the aluminum baseball bat to remove the remaining jagged pieces of glass left in the window channel. He reached inside the car, snapping the handle off as he jerked open the door. He pulled the woman, now free of the seat belt, out of the car, throwing her to the ground. He sat in the driver’s seat, fiddling with the knobs and buttons on the dashboard. The turn signal began blinking, and sound escaped the speakers. Homerun marveled at the sound, but was unable to control it. He punched the dashboard before he stood back up.

Get Over Hating the Sound of Your Voice

The Best Tool for your Shop

What's the best tool?
There is no single end all, be all tool. It comes down to the best tool for the job or the best tool for your area of focus.

I can't tell you the one tool you need, but I will tell you about the power tools I've used and the power tools I absolutely need on certain projects. Though, if you want to be philosophical, I suppose you are the best tool.

“That’s what I need, you got that.” Ray’s voice crackled over the cell phone.

Donnie’s faced scrunched, processing the request. He checked his blind spot and changed lanes before replying. “You want a thousand pairs of socks in assorted colors?” Donnie wanted to hang up on the old man, but you don’t do that to the man that created a crime syndicate.

Conquer Life... Quicker

I like efficiency. Whether attempting to unload groceries from the car in a single trip, determining how to make the fewest cuts with plywood, or the most efficient route to run errands, I don't like to waste my time or effort.
Efficiency. Where speed meets precision.
