I saw him smirk. He carefully avoided eye contact as he trundled by on his riding mower. At least he didn’t bust out laughing. No doubt he was thinking something along the lines, “Just what does she expect to accomplish with that thing?”
I stood a little taller, lifted my chin and kept right on walking with my eco-friendly push mower in front of me. I realize it’s not up to the task of mowing our whole two acres but at least it can get inside my pergola where his big old riding mower with leaf baggers won’t fit. I haven’t used it much over the years but when I need a mower, it serves a very important function: I do not have to crank it or snatch a pull cord to get it going, all of which intimidate me.
Can I get a round of applause for my eco-friendly push mower?
