Then he asked him to leave and come back when he was ready to talk! THAT’S how you do it. (hide spoiler) Jack was so level headed throughout this whole book. Sure he was skittish at times, but I think it was called for.

The concrete mixer combines cement, sand or gravel and water to make concrete. Mixing concrete yourself, by hand, without using a concrete mixer can be pretty grueling and challenging work. My dad, a self-professed handyman, used to do it all the time. I can still remember my normally very mild mannered father standing, quietly cursing at a semi-hardened wheelbarrow load of concrete.

No more hand mixing concrete for him.
