Possibly it's the closest I think I've maybe ever stood to a bucket of lead.

I gasped when I saw it because we all know how poisonous lead is to people's nervous systems &c, & there's a whole bucket of it right there!

I carefully refrained from lifting up the lid and putting my face in. I pulled the neck of my shirt up over my nose, and I tiptoed backwards away from it. I'm good at tiptoeing backwards because when I was growing up we had lots of copperheads living in our yard.

All my life I have heartily disapproved of the use of Pb as the symbol for lead because it sounds like you're talking about peanut butter, for eating.
