Too careful

“Well-known for his competency and ingenuity as a carpenter, my husband was fixing our cottage dock. He removed his watch and placed it on the dock so it wouldn’t get wet. To make sure it wouldn’t fall into the water, he decided to anchor it around a nail. He held the nail against the wood in the center of the band, and with one deft blow he smashed his watch to pieces.”

There’s a lesson here somewhere. Still pondering what it is. 🙂

Be pithy.
