The Lawn Mower

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the shed, the boat, making beer.. Always something more important to me. Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.

When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

I said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway." The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.

  4. He should have gotten a cow. The cow would eat the grass and therefore no need for a lawnmower.
    Have a powerful sunny Saturday Sandee. See ya.

    3. He's right you know. I wouldn't have done this at all. I would have hired a lawn service to do the mowing. Just saying. :)

  8. Sarcastic humor is not always appreciated. I'm sure his wife will always look at his limp and a little smile will come to her face. He will always look at her toothbrush and it bring a tear to his eye.
