The public often believes concrete is simple.

It’s water and gravel – adjust as needed.

This information comes from weekend projects in the backyard, mixing a store-bought bag of aggregate in an unbalanced wheelbarrow.

Water is an afterthought, crawling through a sunbaked hose until it’s added to the mixture.

While this gets the job done as well as trying to dice a tomato with a butter knife, it looks like it works, and that’s all that matters once the weekend ends.

When that pole they’ve erected using concrete falls over in five years, they’ll blame time, erosion and the wind.

They won’t understand their concrete failed them because they failed the mixing process.

And that’s okay.

Because you do understand.
