Sometimes things just take care of themselves
I hate raking leaves. Really. My kids did it once this year. Only once and only because they wanted to jump in the pile.
Then again give me a break. I mean what's the point of raking leaves when the tree is still half covered, right? My neighbor does not get this reasoning. My leaves upset him because they blow in his yard. So yesterday I raked and raked until the lawn was pristine. Perfect I tell you! All those beautiful red leaves are bagged and in my garage.
My neighbor's yard was also pristine. Except he left his bags curbside and they were torn apart by either coyotes, dogs or those crazy raccoons. So now all this wind is creating a leafy tornado in his driveway and then gusting them onto MY lawn . I don't mind. It made me laugh. It made me laugh harder when I saw my neighbor's face.
What's making you laugh today?
