The funny thing about using the chainsaw is that I am always reluctant to start, because the thing scares me, but once I start I enjoy the activity. It does keep me very focused.
A quote from Donald Hamilton kept floating through my mind: "Don't monkey with the buzz saw when it's busy cutting wood."
Now that I've googled it, I see that it's some kind of old saying, at least the first clause is.
Think before you stick your paw
Anywhere near a buzzing saw.
