"Man Fear" riles the roost

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

I admit it. I can stir up trouble. The particular variety I have been engaging in is “Man Fear.”

It begins when I say things like:

“We need a weed trimmer.”

“We need a riding lawn mower and I want one with a Z-turn.”

“I need a hedge trimmer so the azalea bushes can be cut by July.”

“I would like to have one of those small handheld cordless drill/screwdrivers to hang things around the house.”

These things probably cause The Carnivore to have a flashback to when we lived on a sailboat and I oversaw repairs, or actually did them, because the military was always sending him out of town.

There was the time when the 30 amp power plug burned out. I called The Carnivore for a consultation on hiring a repair person and what work he wanted done. He wanted to go up on amperage and we had the second higher connection at the dock.
