He Made Me Do It....

I only volunteered once...to mow....and he didn't go for it. So I never offered to help him again.
But one day, he just came in and got me!
"Get your shoes on. And can wear my straw hat."
That sounds like I'll be out a while!!
And I didn't care for his hat...I wore my own!
He gave me a can of prunin' spray and out the door we went! He cut limbs off the red bud trees and I sprayed.

Not too tough.....then it happened.
"Where's the little clippers?" he asked.
"I don't know. The last I saw they were stuck in the ground."

We looked around and he found them and we went back to work.
I was gettin' hot.
I'm a delicate flower and I don't do yardwork. If you don't remember you must click there to read.

And I was pickin' up the spray and I had the saw....I thought we were finished.

I asked, "Do you have the little clippers?"
"You didn't have them awhile ago."
"What do you want?"
"Do you have them?"

"Do you have them?"
"What do you want?"

Here we go again!
I ask a simple question and I have to justify it before the HighCourt of JudgeSurlyBastard!!

I just don't understand it.
I cocked my head to the side and gave him that "I've had enough" look and said quite plain, quite simple, but in a tone that evoke memories of the broken corelle, "Honey. I don't WANT anything. DO YOU HAVE THE CLIPPERS?"

He got the point! "Yes, I have the clippers."

I might have pointed the saw at him...I forget where the saw was. He might have had a vision of it stuck in his head!
