throwing bricks

Okay, so this is pretty random but I just couldn't pass it up. I was on my way to the grocery store the other day for the makings of tandoori chicken when I saw men throwing bricks. when I first saw it, I hit the brakes. And then I saw it happen again. A man was on scaffolding and his co-worker was throwing up bricks to him. Seems he'd run out and needed a few more. This was a practiced occurrence because each of the five times I watched it happen it went off without a hitch. One easy movement from the thrower to the throwee. and the throwee reached out into midair to catch a brick as if he did it everyday. And maybe he does. Just goes to show you (or me) that wonderful, amazing things happen everyday, even when you're on your way to the grocery store!

There's got to be an illustration in there somewhere.... something in the visual.
