18. Mow the Lawn
I have not had a lawn my entire adult life and I don’t remember ever helping my dad when I lived with my parents (though he said I mowed the lawn one time). Nevertheless, here I am, mowing my parents’ lawn and trying to evade ticks with high socks.
I didn’t just go the easy route with the riding lawn mower. I used my muscle(s) and mowed the lawn with a push lawn mower, despite my parents’ doubt that I wouldn’t have enough strength for the pull cord.
The riding lawn mower was a peaceful experience. The push… not so much. This whole experience made me appreciate how much I love not having a yard to maintain. Back to my cement lawn!
