Does your Work-in-Progress need a Canalmaster?

Construction machines are wasted without a little child to sit in a lawn chair and appreciate the show. This last week, I kept a list of the noisy machines that distracted me *cough* from my revision work.

I didn’t get a picture of the asphalt saw that cut a square hole in the street or the thing that looks like a Narnian monopod that stamps down the dirt when the workers had to put their toys away before the upcoming holiday weekend.

I’m longing to work this Canalmaster into my work-in-progress somehow.

Terry Pratchett has probably done fantasy construction already. I hope someone has.

Look how far the Impressionists got with haystacks and train stations. Not sure how different a Canalmaster looks at mid-day, with frost effects, or covered with snow, but still. . .

What noisy distraction in your world could go into your work?
