My team at work (all nerdy technical types) spent the day yesterday volunteering at Habitat for Humanity building homes for Vets. I'm not much of a carpenter, but at least I can drive a nail straight (or maybe nine out of ten are straight). I was shocked to see how many people couldn't whack a nail to save their lives.
One of my pals told me she thought she was having a heart attack because her hand was numb and her whole arm ached. I had to explain to her that the numbness would have been on the other side and that what she was feeling was just the effects of hard work.
These are truly different times.
