lawn mowers and gasoline.

last night we went to home depot.
where i learned that lawn mowers run off of gas.
that you buy at the gas station.
in a red can.
and take it home.
to pour it into the mower.
to make it go.
i cannot remember ever mowing a lawn in my life.
shameful?
luxurious?
downright hilarious.
that's what i say.
before we had brennan the scout master had never changed a diaper.
i don't see why that is any different from me never having mowed a lawn before our first home.
there's always a first for everything.
just laugh, b/c it's really funny.
i wonder if we'll have to mow it before it snows...

Grass grows fast so you'll get to mow it at least once before the snow! Good thing you're going for the gas mower. Kevin bought a push mower and it did NOTHING to our lawn!

You make a valid point...I definately changed a HECK-LOAD more diapers than lawns mowed before marriage...let alone kids...and although I had mowed a few times...I have still to this day never filled the tank...or know where the gas goes...OH WELL!!

I may be crazy, but lawn mowing is slightly therapeutic for me. Get a good mix on your ipod, and go out and pace. Up and down. Smelling the sweet smell of freshly cut grass, and watching it become beautiful and well manicured before your eyes.
