[ The Only Power Tool
I Know Like the Back of My Hand ]
I spent an inordinate amount
of time mowing the front lawn yesterday! This was caused by the vision
splendid in my head trying to be transferred to some version of actuality.
I normally try to mow the damned thing as best I can : Ie not too many
bald spots, generally the same height all over, an even texture about it
and, lastly but most importantly, completed in not too much time. However,
I have known for some time that, for example, if I don't hold the mower
at a certain angle on a certain part of the lawn that I'll invariably create
a particularly vicious over-mown spot where grass has little chance of
appearing again for weeks. I have never mown this area 'correctly' - Ie
to my total satisfaction. But yesterday it was slightly different. On the
afformentioned 'spot' I exerted an extreme amount of effort and held up
the mower in ways that it was never meant to be held up just so that this
area was as delightfully well mown as the rest of the lawn. And
this wasn't an isolated incident!!
Last point : NO, I'm not anally retentive.
