    1. It’s not an ordinary hammer! It’s very compact and lightweight with various sized screwdrivers that twist out of its handle in a similar fashion to Russian dolls…one of those practical dad gifts.

  1. An arsenal of WMD (weapons of mass destruction) against the diarrhea bacteria! Hehe! Well then, you shouldn’t miss out on any of the exotic North Indian cooking!
    I hope your WMD wouldn’t be needed.
