All the couples in the Lowes and Home Depot commercials are well dressed and childless.
No wonder I watch and think I could possibly accomplish something on my home in DIY fashion.
Where's the reality? Where are the four bored children climbing the walls (or driving the lawn mowers as it may be)? Where is the picture of the mother trying to transplant her lilies while keeping her two-year old out of the street? Where are the broken potato forks that were run over six seasons ago with the lawn mower? Speaking of lawnmowers, where is the rusting out one under the deck that the husband uses for spare parts for the other rusting out one that was given as a handout by someone who thought it might only last the summer more than seven years ago? Where are the chipmunks that dig up the tulip bulbs or the hooligans that use hyacinths as soccer practice? Where is the freeze/boil season of spring? But, let me get back to the real problem, where are the four children that won't let the attractive, well-dressed, happy couple choose their new bushes? (And who wears button downs and khakis to the home improvement store, anyway?)
All I'm sayin'
