Friday 55 Flash Fiction #195 Boring.....

 Up and down, up and down.

It's the same thing, every day, every week, every year.

Why can't I go round in a circle,

or diagonally, or zig zag or even have a day off occasionally?

I wish I could do something else for a living, anything.

The life of a lawnmower is very boring.

Spring turns my thoughts to the garden.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Our mower is about to make its first appearance after our 4 day storm drys out a bit, and not too soon, I lose the dogs sometimes, if I'm not looking closely.

I always thought it would be really cool to peg a lawnmower down in the centre of your lawn and tie it to a rope. Then let it cut in ever decreasing circles so you get a spiral pattern. (This is probably why I did away with my lawn a couple of years ago!)

Linda said...

Speaking of lawnmowers, I think I'm going to be breaking mine out early this year as the lawn is already looking a bit shaggy in places! I don't think I've ever mowed a lawn in New England before May before!

CrystalChick said...

Good one!
Although when I use our mower sometimes I think it does go zig zag. Eh, maybe it's just me swooning in the humidity of our summers. LOL

Shrinky said...

And if he's a ride-on one, he has to put up with someone's bum on him all the while, too (grin)!

A Lady's Life said...

Oh my lawn mower has been known to do very funny stuff like figure 8's and big W's and circles and go up and down hills, trenches.
Sometimes I feel very bad for these lawn mowers They have such work to do.

Beach Bum said...

Going to have to reintroduce my son to our lawnmower very soon.

Mama Zen said...

Ha! I love it!

Valerie said...

Clever! Oh yea, even the lawnmower complains....

Brian Miller said...

ha, i rather think of my lawn mowing as a meditation in ever diminishing circles....

Misty Dawn said...

Haha! My first guess was a zipper, but I was wrong.

Secret Agent Woman said...

If it were my lawn mower it would - I get bored, too, and always change up the pattern.
