When I tell people that we bought a push mower, they usually respond with words of praise and encouragement. “That’s some cutting edge technology you invested in. What’s next on your list? A butter churn?”
The reason I bought a push mower, though, is because we don’t have much grass. Our lawn looks like the “Before” picture used in hair transplant commercials. “Cris’ lawn could never get a woman’s attention. And men just felt sorry for it.” Thus it doesn’t make sense to buy anything more powerful. It would be like buying a Zamboni after spilling some ice chips on the kitchen floor.
