putting my money where my mouth is


if i was participating in a 'How to Look Like a Total Weirdo Challenge', this would be post 1. The vege seedlings in the garden are all hitting their straps, so its fertilising time. when it came time to feed them this morning i found no organic fertiliser in the shed. Now the local supply shop isnt far from home but it was a bit too far to carry a 25kg load on my shoulders. 20kg bags of mortar i have done, switching shoulders along the way but i was worried that 25kgs and the walk might have meant i'd bitten off more than i could comfortably chew. The day was glorious and the thought of driving up the road for just one bag seemed a bit rich; i was emotionally and ethically compromised. So i bit the ego bullet and wheeled the damn barrow up to the shop, along the footpaths and 'parked' it in the vehicle loading bay. The guys in the shop were pretty amused but thought it was a good idea. Made sense to me and i actually had fun pushing, not only the 'barra' but a few social boundaries. I think if i was a bloke then i wouldnt have drawn so many funny looks but then again maybe i was just being sensitive. now if id not changed out of my cut offs and gumboots...
