For Every Season, A New Attack on Justin.

Many of you will recall with some horror my June 08 post in which I described my neighborhood's mockery of my lawn mowing techniques.

They are not any kinder during the winter.


(Pictured: My Driveway)

Yesterday, I may have accidentally gotten my car stuck at the end of the driveway. As I got out of my car, A helpful neighbor pointed out "That is why we shovel the shoulder of the driveway and not just up until the sidewalk."

To which I replied, "Good sir, did it ever occur to you that I am planning my triumphant return to bloggerdom? And that hardly allows me the leisure to clear my whole driveway?"

No doubt this stung badly enough. But I am ruthless, like a rabid golden doodle. So I added: "Between your wife's exact remarks on my lawn mowing and your salient observations on my shovelling, you two should be interesting all the year around."

Later that evening, I replaced the deicing salts they keep at their back porch with anthrax.

I plan to come up with something even more diabolical for lawn mowing season.

Have a great monday!

Are those your kids?

Justin said...

Maleah,

In reference to your vowell-less-ness or ambient temperatures?

Either way, you seem ideally located, geographically.

Mr. Chaos,
That isn't a driveway, it is my neighbor's rock garden.

Anony,
I can tell you this: If I ever have kid, I will require them to play in tuxedos.

I was just about to give up on my blog, but you have lifted my spirits.

Where is your blog and how much for a crystal tolstoy?
