Top Ten Things I Learned While Mowing the Back Yard Today

1. Ants don't like it when you run over their home with a lawn mower.

2. Mowing the back yard in a two-piece swimsuit, while being a popular spectator event for neighbors, is not good protection against angry ants who have been launched into the air after their home was run over by a lawn mower.

3. Wet flip-flops are not the best yard mowing footwear.

4. There is a difference between a self-propelled mower and a regular push mower, and mine is NOT self-propelled.

5. Aerobic system sprinklers don't care if you're mowing the grass.

6. I am not in good shape.

7. It is possible to drink a 24 ounce bottle of water in one try.

8. Lawn mowers don't like frisbees.

9. Swing sets, hammocks, and trees suck.

10. All I want for Christmas is a riding lawn mower.

Yeah, self-propelled mowers are nice. And always spring for the Honda engine...
