Teenage girls should not be doing this, much less women of a more advanced age & therefore knowledge. A tank top & shorts is perfectly acceptable attire. Booty shorts & a string bikini top, not so much.
I told Husband he needed to teach me to use his mower so I could buy a neon bikini & spend my days mowing our 2 acre yard while sunning myself to a crispy golden brown. His reply? "Woman, stay away from my mower."
I've only mowed twice in my life. Once when I was in high school because I felt like it and once when I was 19 or 20 because I had a crazy room mate (not Art) who spent 2 months in California (long story). But never once have I mowed since Husband & I married.
He spent the first year we were in the country push mowing our lawn. It was a grueling, miserable, sun burnt task & I hated that he had to do it....but not so much that I'd volunteer to take over his lawn duties. We also had a deal that once I quit work to stay home with the FarmHands, all indoor duties were mine & all out door chores were his. Who was I to infringe on his space? When he finally got a riding mower (yes, it's a Sears Craftsman), he insisted I ride around on it. He was so proud of it. I couldn't really say no....as much as I wanted to. I took a quick ride across the front yard, then abdicated. I was still recovering from B.B.'s birth (C-section) and was in no mood to be vibrated half to death. Since then, I've stuck with the 4 wheeler when I wanted some off road fun.
Last week, the mower battery died. I picked up a new one at Sears on Friday & Husband hooked it up to his
Before the afternoon came to a close, I had not only driven a few laps around our yard, but actually mowed 2 swipes around the garden & down the path to it so he could run the tiller without tromping through knee high weeds.
Bitsy was very impressed with my mowing prowess & Husband was very patient with my complete ineptitude with anything mechanical.
This may be the beginning of a new relationship between me & lawn equipment.
Then again, maybe not.
The weed eater & I despise each other.
