I’m Just Sayin

I’m mowing the grass.
 
Because I’m a good wife and because Hubby asked me polietly before he left.
 
I’m 45 years old.  I’ve cut a few lawns in my time.  I did it at home growing up . . . Dad made sure all us girls knew how to cut grass.  ‘Cause there are things a man has to teach his daughters.  I learned using a good old fashioned Sears Craftsman gas powered push mower.  I was good at manhandling that big old thing. 
 
Hubby bought an electric mower last year.  Easier to push around the yard.  Better for the environment.  Cheaper than gas powered self-propelled mower.  blah.  blah.  blah. 
 
I hate that &$%@*! electric mower.
 
I have to be careful not to run over the power cord.  It cuts out if I take my hand off the handle.  If I tug on the cord too hard it comes unplugged.  I worry about being shocked if I happen to hit a patch of grass that’s not completely dry.   
 
If they’re so wonderful, why did man invent the gas powered mower first?
 
I’m just sayin . . .

    I want a gas powered mower when I mow. I definitely would run over the cord of an electric mower.
