I smash.

by rivets

Rivets smash. Most things break if you smash them hard enough. I smashed 280lbs of glass today. I will do it again tonight. That’s the best part of the day – the smashing hour. Tempered glass goes “BOOSH” when it smashes. It’s the greatest sound in the world. If I could find a job where all I had to do all day was smash glass, I’d take it in a heartbeat, even if it paid minimum wage.

Breaking glass is the greatest. When I was a kid, my dad took me out on Saturday mornings to collect aluminum cans for recycling. For a while, the recycling centers also accepted bottles. Once a month, (or rather “me” a month) we brought our stash to the recycling center to cash in. There was a guy who took all the bottles and hurled them into big barrels, smashing them. One after another, this was his job. Smashing bottles.

I would stand and watch him with raw animal lust in my heart.

Dad and I drove some out of the way county highways in our quest for bottles and cans, and occasionally would come across an old discarded tv set. No flat screen stuff here, this was back in the olden days of vacuum tube technology. You’ve not lived until you’ve hurled a brick dead center into a vacuum tv tube. It’s its own sci-fi movie effect as the vacuum sucks the smashing glass inward, accompanied by a deep bass sound that is best described as “WHOOOOOOOMMMMMPPPPPHHHHTTTTTTHHHHHH.” Or something like that.

I’ve actually smashed the screen of a crt monitor before…. Is a weird story, but it was quite a lot of fun. (was helping a friend with a school project thingy)
Also here we just have large collection dumpster things for recycling (not many places pay for any recycling here) and I remember very young me violently throwing the glass bottles into the glass section so they would shatter.

Haha, if I had done that for 2 seconds my parents would have terminated me. 🙂

Anyway, what bothers you? I have not seen you for a long time.
