Axe Throwing in Sarasota County?

Axe Throwing in Sarasota County?

| Laura Bell Adams |

We have all been there. You wake up late for an early morning meeting, and now must deal with a child whose sense of urgency just does not match yours.

The car needs gas, the kids need a teacher gift and you already need a break at the 9:00 AM mark. The day proceeds with a series of near misses as coffee spills, forgotten lunchbox, and neglected to-do list nag at your desire to always be in control. You cannot believe that today, of all days, you are asked to work late. You know that before you even get home you have to pick up groceries and what else?? Oh yes! Do not forget to pick up the children from the bus. That would be bad.


It is on days like this that you wish you had an outlet for your frustration, something that isn’t going to poison your body or inhibit your ability to drive an automobile. You still have people you are accountable for, those you must protect, shelter, and feed. You need to get your angst out in an expedient manner so you can get back to the business of parenting and being a responsible adult. If only you had an axe that you could hurl at a target. Doesn’t chucking all your “stuff” with all the might you can muster at a bullseye sound better than keeping it in? Let it go at The Axe Haus in North Port.
