Not too long ago, I was lying in my bed, minding my own business, staring up at the ceiling. The light in the ceiling fan is out, and I don’t really want to mess with it, but it is one of those things you are forced to do in the middle of the day, it is a “man thing” that she requires of you. I do this a lot in the morning, lay in my bed and think things out.
Like this morning, I was lying there, listening to the coffee pot making coffee in the kitchen and thinking about painting my lawn green. I was thinking about how much money, time and energy this would save, if it was just painted a bright green. A totally green lawn, the envy of the neighborhood, and I would save on water too. Good for the environment.
Think about how amusing it would be when the neighbor’s dog appeared, squatted down, and then got that ……. “What the _____ is this, look on his face?” .. Yeah a green lawn, that would be cool. No more $4 gasoline in that hemorrhaging smoke belching noise making monster. I could toss his two-cycle lung killing weed-whacking cousin in the trash too.
This has promise.
Think about it. A lawn that I did not have to water or pamper, or spend time with, I like that last part the best. Kind of like the relationship we currently have with our children. I am going to have to look into this further, there might be a shred of hope here? A totally green lawn all summer long. Just thinking about this makes me want to sing a joyful, soul stirring song …… Come on! Dunka-Shane, Dunka Shane …… C’mon, everybody join in, celebrate!
Hey … Where did everyone go? High gloss or Satin ….. Hmmmmm ……
Well, I don’t care how negative it gets, I don’t care how lousy things seem to be, I am NOT going to let it drag me down. I am sticking with the plan. I am going to have the “greeniest” lawn in town by the end of summer, so green that Scott’s will send a scientist or one of them really smart fellers around, just to check it out.
Watch N See.
