Well that's one way to use it for emotional expression!
Not one I'd recommend :icon_roll .
Don't be too hard on yourself for pegging it into glass - sometimes dark moments are well relieved by something noisy!
If I'd wanted noise, I'd have played Nazareth's booming and dark cover Dylan's "Ballad of Hollis Brown" at about 50% volume level on my stereo (any louder and things tend to fall off shelves, et cetera).
something to be said for the custom of downing a shot and then smashing the glass into the brick fireplace!
I never went in for shot glasses when one of my drugs-of-choice was alcohol; they only hold a drop, and alcohol comes in a handy glass container.
The only bummer is the need to clean up afterwards (and fix said window)
No doubt. My only remaining glass cutter's wheel is not in great shape, and I was afraid I'd ruin the glass and have to somehow figure out how to crap out the money to get a new piece. Plus, it's a bit of a walk to the nearest store that sells it, and I can be a bit of a klutz at times (even discounting the fact that I can't @#%@#^&@@%!#%@#ing see well any more).
I should probably explain, lest folks think I tear things up on a daily basis...
There's a portion of one of my walls that is, basically, masonry that would probably be at home as a component of a 13th-century castle's wall. It just happens to be beside a window (anyone guess where this story ends, LOFL?). When I'm unduly stressed and/or upset, I heave my rock at it. Then I either catch it, go pick it up, or (once) get back up off the floor and then go pick it up.
I visited my grow space to check on things. Picked up a plant to make sure that everything was hunky dory (and... it was). I then made the same mistake I make at least once a year, and became happy. I carefully placed the plant back where it had been, and then - of course - the #@%^ thing fell because I didn't see that it was on the edge. I picked it up and it's broken about an inch above the soil. I came out of the grow space, pulled the rock out of my pocket (tend to carry it around for stress relief), and pitched it at the designated target area. And, well...
I can't find any tape. I can't even find any duct tape (although how I'd get that back off after the plant healed without snapping it again, IDFK). It's just... pretty much gone. So gone.
I've got... like, IDK, plenty of seeds at present. And that was the only one of that particular stain, I think. Think it USED TO BE a white widow auto plant, that I was hoping would prove to be beneficial. It'd just started flowering.
IDK why I bother. I really don't. Using a hammer would hurt less - and it'dd be a hellofa lot quicker. Cehaper, too.
