Dirt in our future

As Steve walked by me the other night, I said, “Do you know what we’re going to have to do soon?”


“We’re going to have to go to Paul’s Discount and get a bunch of dirt,” I said.

There was resounding silence as Steve fled into another room.

“Aren’t you excited?” I yelled after him.

He walked back into the living room. “I’m going to plead the Fifth,” he said. “I don’t want to convict myself yet.”

    I love going to the mulch store and getting some new top soil in the spring!

    i did not “flee” the room. i was not running like a little girl scared by a big bear. i was simply going about my routine. I AM NOT THREATENED BY GARDENING.

    Doth I protest too much?

    Sounds great! I suggest taking a different vehicle or buying fewer bags this time. Last time was a pretty funny story.

    Good luck!

    Carol, you have a mulch store? Interesting…

    Steve, yes, thou dost protest too much.

    Marc, I think we’ve got a better idea of how many bags Red Thunder will hold…hopefully our memories are good!
