i ADORE your myth dispelling and drainage advice but !!!Sweetie!!!!You gotta be in the habit of USING SAFETY GOGGLES when drilling!!! SORRY TO PICK ON YOU BUT You're too smart / your eyes are too pretty /and the world needs more from you- and trust me even minor corneal abrasions excruciating! ( You can grab a couple pair of clear goggles at any dollar store. ) But they're a MUST HAVE . Ok . Pardon my unsolicited preaching! More power to you Joanna!Your humble fan- Whitney
