How To… Chip Away the Stone

Stones are really rather tough. I’m sure that you yourself are perfectly sharp, equipped with fiendish nails, pointy teeth (please don’t read that as me flinging any criticisms your way, I’m sure that however fiendishly pointy or pointily fiendish your features may be they’re also tastefully manicured and positively gleaming) and a thoroughly agile moxie. However, none of that means that you’ll be able to chip away the stone all on your own without help.

There are well known tools out there to aid you in your chipping. I’m sure I could probably go on ahead and tell you all about it but how would that help you learn and grow and develop in this merry journey we all call life? You need to go out and educate yourself. It’s along the same lines as that old adage that if you teach a man to apply the lessons gleaned during watching copious popular culture to stuff they want to do then… well, ratings will go up for old films and stuff.

So one title I would heartily recommend that you peruse is The Shawshank Redemption. In this heart-warming tale, amongst the instances of sexual assault and suicide, there you will find the perseverance of Andy, who tunnels his way out of prison over decades in the big house. There are probably a few more examples out there for you to uncover but this one will do quite well for the time being. After all, you’re just looking to chip a stone, this is hardly rocket science here.

Anyway, the wrongfully imprisoned scamp asks for a rock hammer, supposedly to carve chess pieces out of soapstone. So, the next time you’re in that particular set of circumstances, I’m sure you know what to do. Otherwise, a chisel will probably serve your purposes relatively well. I mean really, I don’t know what you’re making such a fuss about.
