Response to H2O Man (Original post)

35. My favolite part of your essay was ...

"I do the more technical tasks, including weeding, planting seeds, and changing the Beatles CDs as needed." This sounds to me like a recipe for a perfect life. Now that it is finally warm enough here to attack the damage winter wrought, I realize that I, too, can listen to Beatles CDs, without even hunting up an extension cord. The rose bushes have new growth, and some dwarf forget-me-nots have carpeted part of my tiny flower bed. I have planted nothing this year, as it only just stopped snowing. In the last few years, I have been entranced by how many of last year's annuals have decided they like to grow here, and reseeded themselves in attractive places. The peonies have buds. As for our president, I have maintained from the beginning of his "tenure" that he should never have been sworn in to begin with, and that the rest of the country is under the mass delusion that he has any power. He has no power except what we give him, which I recommend we stop doing immediately, especially his power to spoil our day. Only we can spoil our day. Instead, let's seize the day, seed it, water if necessary, and admire our crop while listening to Beatles CDs.
