Things not to do at 1:30am

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.³
¹ 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.

You do your best work at night, my love. :-)

This post made me laugh :)

Well, one of the new euphemisms I learned this weekend was "lady garden." So I read "mowing the lawn" as a euphemism involving a lady garden.

Coming back to the real world sucks sometimes.

You rock! :) And thanks for putting ideas into heads - Eor asked me if I could mow a little this morning. ;)

Makes sense to me. Given the current heat wave, I wish I'd slept through the days and worked the nights.

Sounds like the best time to me! Without the sun beating down on you, and when it's coolest and all...
