Wordless Wednesday: Limp as a Pastry Bag

The pictures are from my cell phone, which won't focus well, but at the end of the day at the bakery, i'm about as limp as one of these pastry bags!

Empty pastry bags at the end of the day, when frosting is done.

One of several five gallon buckets of frosting used in one day!
