I have to wonder what it says about me that I just decided to mow my lawn¹ at 1:30am², because I genuinely think that’s the most appropriate time I’m likely to get in the foreseeable future.³¹ Well, the most visible portion of it, anyway. ² Mind you, this was with a manual rotary mower.⁴ I don’t want to wake up my neighbours. ³ For values of “the foreseeable future” approaching “before a possible deluge delivered by the dregs of hurricane Earl”. ⁴ Which does not in fact actually cut any grass stalks over a certain height, which, plus last week’s rains, mean it was not so much a matter of “mowing” the lawn as of “pushing over” the lawn. But it still looks better than before. Or at least I hope it might, when there’s daylight and I can see it.
