It slays me, it really does. I finally bought two sprinklers for my lawn -- at HEB. HEB??? Yes, that's right -- none at Target, a bunch at HEB. So there you go. But that's not the greatest part.
The best part is that when I got home today, I actually put the sprinklers in the yard and turned the water on. I set the timer for one hour. I felt a great sense of relief, finally giving my lawn the lifeblood it so badly needed. I could almost see the parched earth slurping at the water. In my head, I could picture the lizard and frog ho-down that would occur later, when they discovered the bounty I had bestowed upon them. I was feeling smug. I admit it. But nature had the last laugh. Because for the first time in a couple of months, as soon as the one-hour timer went off and I went out to turn off the water, I realized I was getting wet -- because it was RAINING.
HA HA. Very funny. THIS is why I hate yard work. That and the f-ing fire ants.
