It’s finally a nice sunny day here, and I’m in the middle of a few chores that have been staring at me for some time. I’m realizing very quickly that there are a lot of chores that are a whole lot more fun than others. Specifically, any chore that gets a gadget. As we’re unpacking boxes, I’m finding more and more toys that we’ve bought over the years, and in a lot of cases, I’m kind of looking forward to using them. We have leaf blowers, car washers, polishers, weed whackers, you name it. All sorts of tools that magically take an uninteresting, mundane task and make it actually interesting. They’re rather remarkable gadgets in that sense. I have little to no interest in gardening, but put a gasoline engine and a piece of plastic string, spinning at high speed, and all of a sudden I’m a gardener.
