Nothing Runs Like me "Dear"


For you virgin followers that think all I do is rant and rave about our beloved Red Sox... SURPRISE !!!!! Here's a different little post - a quick peak into my pee... uh, PEA-brain... don't blink... it's a short trip

I never cease to amaze myself... uh, I MEAN laugh at myself... not because I think I'm witty or humorous.... but BECAUSE I can be some big idiot sometimes. Case in point....

I arrived home from the store at approximately 6:08:34 pm... give or take 5 seconds.... NOW, I've been watching the grass grow daily - NOT a hobby mind you, I prefer watching paint dry myself !!!!

Anyway, I've been putting off cutting the grass for ohhhhhhhhhh.... 3 days now... maybe putting it off for a rainy day.... but more-so convincing myself that cutting the grass is at least a half day ordeal... at least that's what it seems like when it's 90 degrees and your "quenching your thirst" ....

But, earlier today I decided that today was the day !!! I'd suck it (and the "suds") up and dedicate "half" my day to cutting the grass. Needless to say, "best laid plans......" as the grass was still not cut AFTER 6pm....

Now we're into the Sox pregame show... BUT, in order to not feel like a total loser, I made a deal with the devil..... uh, myself.... "I'll cut what I can before the game"....

So, I saddled up and mounted my trusty steed... or Craftsman walk behind - my lawn really isn't that big.... at 6:11 pm... I checked the gas level of said steed and "adjusted" my deal.... "I will mow until first pitch or the gas runs out.....

So.... I pulled... uh... the starter cord..... and commenced mowing... I figured if I could get AT LEAST the front done..... no one sees the back.... or the front for that matter with the privacy fence !

Long story short... after awhile, my steed was putting out ZERO horsepower... it was plum tuckered out... OR, it had run out of gas... so I returned her to the stables... uh, the carport... and returned to the homestead to feed "faithful" cling-on, Snoopy...

Upon entering the feeding room, I checked the sundial.... expecting to see at least 7:00 pm.. I mean I had mowed the front, the side (the other side is all driveway) and 3/4 of the back... not bad for less than an hour.... so, I thought.

Upon inspection of said sundial, it read 6:30 !!!!!!!! Are you freaking kidding me ?!?!?! IT TOOK LESS THAN 20 MINUTES to mow 80% of the lawn ?!?!?!?

Obviously, refueling the steed and finishing crossed my mind.... but, there's ALWAYS tomorrow !!!!!!! I opted to "fuel" myself instead...............

LMAO! Wow, John. All I can say is maybe you had more "suds" than you thought and you were working in hyper mode. Of course, it's more likely you just didn't want to miss our beloved Bosox take the field!

Sounds like a very stressful day or is that relaxing? Which is it when you watch the grass grow and the paint dry? ;)
