Concrete worker ruminates on clumsy students, sandcastles and assault with a shovel

SAPP: We're just repairing this brick. It's settled down, so we're gonna put concrete under it and flatten it out so you guys don't trip.

WILDCAT: I've done that plenty of times. But don't you, secretly, kind of like to watch students just go by and trip?

SAPP: Oh, yeah. They're on their cell phones all the time, walking along and they trip.

WILDCAT: Nice. What's your favorite kind of candy?

SAPP: M & Ms.

WILDCAT: Are you partial to any specific color?

SAPP: No.

WILDCAT: You really don't think any color tastes better?

SAPP: It doesn't bother me either way.

WILDCAT: Well then, answer me this question: How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?

SAPP: I have no idea.

WILDCAT: Don't you just want to know?

SAPP: No. Takes too much time. Just eat it.

WILDCAT: You guys have to be excited that the weather is changing.

SAPP: Oh, yeah, it's cooling down a little bit. It makes our jobs a little easier.

WILDCAT: Is it true that when you are out working in the heat you layer your clothes more, so that you sweat profusely; and when the wind blows it cools you off?

SAPP: Yeah, we all wear long sleeves with T-shirts under it.

WILDCAT: Really? That is so strategic. Who would've ever thought it? Are there any other tricks you guys do?

SAPP: We wear a bandanna around our necks, when it's real hot.

WILDCAT: That's a real creative one. Do you ever build sandcastles or cement castles?

SAPP: No, we just work usually.

WILDCAT: But there is always time for sandcastles, Ed!

SAPP: Nope, nope, not here.

WILDCAT: Well, do you ever knock anyone over the head with a shovel to whip ╬em into shape?

SAPP: No, but I'd like to.
