I had this little accident with the lawnmower.

You see, it starts with the safety bar. There's this bar that goes across the handle that shuts off the lawnmower if you let it go. Unfortunately, it's really uncomfortable because it takes some pressure to grip and after several minutes, your hands really ache.

So I used a grip clamp to hold it down. That of course means that the lawnmower can run without my actually holding the handle.

It also means that I can fill the gas tank while the mower is still running.

And I can not screw the gas cap on tight enough so that it comes off the mower while I'm mowing and I run over it, chewing it up into tiny bits.

What, you thought I was going to stick my hand in there while the mower was running?



Not my mower, but the same model. Mine's red. Not from blood, it's Canadian. And my blade isn't all bent to hell. It's just got a few nicks in it.

Now I have to try and find a replacement gas cap.

at least you still have eyebrows. that's where I thought this was going.

I can't do things this weekend...I thought we had mentioned next week sometime? I have something like three papers to write this weekend, and...I really need to get buckled down on this whole externship thing or it's not going to happen.

but next week. we are definitely, absolutely, without a doubt doing something next week. just tell me when. I have no plans whatsoever, so pick any day. I'll come over.
