1. attention seeking Jack Russel dog
2. dog ball
3. latches on guitar case that alert attention seeking Jack Russel
4. wet soggy ball in guitar case, once opened
5. the high pitched whining of the attention seeking dog while playing guitar
6. being an easy pushover, and choosing to play catch the ball with Jack

7. repeat scenario everyday

Sports that involve your hands and weight lifting (can be bad for your nails).

Ironically, being too focused on protecting the hands/nails. Example, I was worried about catching my nail on that board and drove a splinter right into the pad of my finger.

Household Appliances:
I am going to clean the refrigerator this morning. I have been dreading it, since I will chip or break a nail on all those shelves, drawers etc. that require removal, cleaning, reassembly ad nauseum. Bummer. :(

I am also afraid of my washer and dryer. Their doors "have a contract on long nails".

Simply dressing and undressing...catching nails on loose threads etc.

Or controversially.....worrying that you have to play with nails in the 1st place ;-)
