“I was walking in the park downtown today and saw something I’ve never seen before,” said Chip.

 

“If you’re in that park you’re bound to see a few things,” replied Dan.

 

“No, seriously. I saw two guys in a boom lift blowtorching a statue,” explained Chip.

 

The image of that made Dan scowl. “Are you sure you saw that right?”

 

“I know what a blowtorch looks like,” countered Chip.

 

“What were they doing?”

 

“That’s what I wanted to know, so I asked them.”

 

Dan raised an eyebrow. “And?”

 

“They said it’s how they maintain bronze statues. They clean it off and melt some kind of wax over it to protect it,” explained Chip.

 

“That’s crazy,” exclaimed Dan.

 

“Crazy awesome.”

 

“I can’t believe someone gets paid to do that,” said Dan, shaking his head.

 

“Any job that requires a blowtorch,” concluded Chip, “is a job I want to do.”
