I knew we could make this an “All Spoiler week” if we tried.
Last week–just exactly a week ago–we had a soil scientist from the lawn care company that mistakenly trespassed on our property, poisoned my vegetable garden and “treated” some of my perennial and shrubs with broad leaf weed killer come out, allegedly to take “soil samples and tissue cultures” from the affected plants and areas.
Perhaps they got nervous when I started saying words to them like “trespass” and “irreplaceable” plants. Nevertheless, I permitted them to come.
When I told the Spoiler they were coming, he said, “Oh good. There are some brown areas in the grass I want them to look at too.”
“Some brown areas in the grass.” Long time readers of this blog know that we don’t irrigate our lawn. It was August 25 when they came–a very dry August, I might add.
Nevertheless, it is undeniable that they did spray a lot of this broad-leaf weed killer all over the lawn. So I simply said, “that’s fine, honey. You just be here so you can show them where.”
I have to keep the Spoiler happy, after all.
