No, I'm not Darth Vader. I learned to make sure I used something to protect me from the dust the hard way.
A few weeks ago I was working without a mask. Little did I know I had 'walking' pneumonia.
The Monday after a weekend of turning pens I started coughing up blood, and not a little blood; so much that I went to the emergency room.
When I see pictures of people doing this without a mask I want to ask 'what are you doing'? It bothers me when I see that they are teaching their children or a cub scout pack how to make pens.
Anyway, safety first my friends. At the end of the day, it is only a pen.
