Fighting With the Lawnmower

Every lawnmower I hear is mocking me.

Ugh!!!! I’m so frustrated. It feels like every time I go to mow the lawn, something happens to the dang mower or me. One time I forgot how to do the choke and my husband’s explanation over the phone was no help. Another time I got smoke coming from the engine. It was just oil in the air filter, but I had to look it up. I mean, I knew it was something with the oil because the smoke was white, but it’s been over a decade since I’ve had to mow a lawn.

Another time, the cord snapped in half as I pulled to start it. One time, I was just too tired from mowing to pull the cord right. And today. Today, the fixed cord decided to pop out of the pull handle. The grass is too long, I’ve been too tired or it’s been too hot (over 90 degrees Fahrenheit plus humidity), and I really just want this damn lawn mowed.
