feet eater

so yesterday we are out in the back yard having a dandy time playing. we are throwing the ball around, spinning, and things like that. there is a lull in the activity for just a second (i knew i should not have stopped spinning!) and mom looks over at the grass. "wow, the grass is getting tall! i should weedeat."

she goes and plugs in the weedeater, and i am sad and scared. i just hate that thing. i guess partially because it is so noisy and awful, and partly because it destroys everything in its path. somehow, the combination of those two things is a little too stressful for me. i quickly run to the door and get dad to let me inside where i can play on the floor safely with him.

mom comes in a few minutes later with a bloody, bruised foot. she hobbles in and says to me, "sam, you must never, ever weedeat in flipflops!" this works out for me, because for one, i do not wear flipflops. for another, i hope to never ever touch the big scary noisy awful grass-destroying machine. she says it is her own fault for not paying attention, but i am not so sure. i knew i should not trust that thing. it is out to eat feet!

oye weh! feet eaters are the devil!! they are by far my least favorite yard implement. and that even includes a bush-hog- which in possum trot is indeed a yard implement. is your mom wounded for life? will she hobble permanently?

i do not usually reply to comments because i am so busy, but i thought i should put an update, since people seem to be worried about my mom:

her foot is just fine! now it just looks like she got scratched by a mean cat or something a lot of times, and she still has five toes. i counted!!

sam! I am so glad you let us know. I am really sad I move back to arkansas and i still haven't seen you. Your mommy and I should really be better at keeping in touch. Well, I love you little dude and watch out for feet eaters.
