Toolboxes in Paradise

Ugh, so midterms are this week. And that basically means I won't sleep until Spring Break. (Yay! Who needs sleep anyway? You can sleep when you're dead.) It also means, I am running low on interesting blog topics. Hmm.  As much as I would love to complain about all the work I have to do (while also barely having enough time in the day to accomplish one thing) that doesn't make for very interesting conversation. So, how about toolboxes?! Pretty weird, huh?
They're just so boxy. And large. And surprisingly, a lot are red. Is that a criterion? Google search toolboxes and you will find a page of primarily red toolboxes. I know toolboxes are geared more toward males, but why red? What makes red more of a masculine color than blue?
 The very masculine Uncle Sam (the revered un-official mascot of our proud nation) is always decked out in blue and red and white. Maybe toolboxes should all be modeled after the American flag. Then, we should mass export them. I would support that.

Because we don't speak English, we speak Amurrican.

  1. This is so not what I had in mind when I gave you toolboxes. I meant tools, like men who wear Ed Hardy and are jackasses. Oh well. And yes, we do speak Amurrican.
