Mr. Fix-it and I were talking recently. We were talking about new recruits. Mr. Fix-it is an Army Recruiter and knows a lot about new recruits. I do too. Mainly because they always call him on his government issued cell phone. Doesn't matter if it is 2:00 AM on a day we are on vacation in Maine, or 2:00 PM on New Year's Day. This was the case on this New Year's Day. I got to laughing and said the one thing you will never hear a new recruit say is, "Gee, it is a holiday, I better wait until my recruiter goes back to work tomorrow morning to call him and tell him I have a cold." Or something silly like that. I am positive the recruit thought he had something very important to say right there and then, but what are they thinking? I am sure there are many other things you will never hear a recruit say, but this one thing is a joke between Mr. Fix-it and I because he gets so many calls without regard to family time or off time (Do recruiters get such a thing?).
This conversation got me to thinking about what ten things you would never hear a gardener say. I need help with this one guys. I really do. I have some ideas but not enough. I will start with some things you will never hear me say:
1) Gee, we have had enough rain this month, I wish it would stop raining!
2) I just love watching the deer.
3) Those pesky worms are so gross.
4) That compost pile stinks.
5) Euuwww! Manure!
6) There are too many birds in the garden.
7) It is so great those moles and voles aerate the garden for me.
8) Oh no! Not MORE flowers!
9) That tree is growing too fast.
10) I'm scared of bees and spiders.
What are some things you all would never say as a gardener? I have to confine this list to what I would never say, simply because I know some gardeners actually do like watching deer (me too but I remember they like to eat gardens then I don't like watching them-ever). Let me know if you disagree or agree and please add to my list. I need help! I know there are so many more things you would never catch a gardener saying.
in the garden....thinking about lists.
