"Screwing in a light bulb"

Before I do my "changing lightbulbs" thingie, We went to shoot air-soft for my son 11th birthday today and I will post tomorrow about it.

One, but the rest of the class copies the report.

One to set up the ladder and the other to complain it is too high.

How many choir directors?
Nobody knows--nobody's ever watching.
