Life Lesson #7
So, I mentioned in my last LL#6 how my mom and I got into an argument. Well the outcome of that was my mom forcing me to do some yard work. In my opinion, I think gardening/working in the yard is: 1) a gigantic waste of time 2) a huge waste of money 3) a useless waste of energy since all of the dumb plants die anyways. Even the perennials sometimes freeze and die because of the crazy weather changes.
My dad even jokes all the time that when I grow up my backyard is going to be one huge slab of cement. I never was joking when we discussed that.
The point is though, that after 30 excruciating minutes of push mowing the dumb lawn (I’ll finish my rant in a minute), I ended up getting a cold that has lasted for two straight weeks, and is still running strong.
Life Lesson #7- Do NOT Do Yard Work
Push mowing is a 100% waste of time. I could have killed someone. We don’t have a gigantic yard or anything, probably 3/4 of an acre. So we generally mow the lawn with the riding lawn mower and then weed whack whatever we don’t get close enough to with the rider. Well, apparently, push mowing the lawn is necessary (read as: 100%, definitely UNnecessary) so I was “given” that outdoor chore to do.
After doing the bull crap, I started sneezing and coughing. My eyes are watering, and I’ve been having a scratchy throat off and on ever since I did that stupid chore.
Maybe you are not understanding me ( although I hope you can empathize a little) I did this August 21st. Today is September 7th. I have had this flipping annoying cold for 16 days. It is getting ridiculous. And I blame my allergies I apparently have to grass/the outdoors. So the point is, I implore you, do not do yard work. It is a waste of time, money, and energy and there is the potential that you could be sick for 16 days strong and never stop feeling like crap after that dumb yard work is over.
