While at dinner one night with colleagues, my table of four scooted our table to make for a little more space. Having a granite top, it was unbelievably heavy as we pushed it towards the people sitting on the other side of the table. About 10 minutes later, our waiter and the manager frantically scrambled to our table after noticing that our table adjustment resulted in that 200 pound slab of granite now being precariously perched upon the base and the folks on the other side of the table were unknowingly dangerously close to cracking all four femurs.
It made me realize that sometimes in life we can be having a great time and then all of a sudden, BAM!, your femurs are snapped in half by an unusually heavy tabletop. Enjoy every minute of every day, folks. You could be just seconds away from snapping your femurs without even knowing it.
