A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.
But not more than a bushel of crabs at the current market price.
It takes a lot of patience to pick a crab.
Twisting off each leg.
Opening the top of the shell and cleaning out the insides.
Delicately using a mallet and a knife to smoothly open the claws...
And then you realize, after a couple of your favorite beverages,
that it's just a whole lot easier to pound the hell out of it with the crab hammer.
Yes, patience is something I need to work on.
