I Hate Weeds in Flower Beds!!!!

Dad said I did so well mowing the lawn last week that now I could mow it every week.  He is trying to push all of his jobs off on me—and I am just a kid.  There should be some law to protect us kids from working in the summers.  Then he said that I would get a $2.00 for each week I did the mowing.  This is sounding better than I thought. I like money!

And then the surprise:  Dad explained that the flower bed between our house and the neighbors need to be weeded.  That was my new job for the week. I can handle mowing but weeding is something else.  This is hot and dirty work.  If Adam and Eve had not messed up there would be no weeds.  This is their fault!  I have to clean up after them.  Anyway, Dad took me out to the flower bed and showed me the difference between weeds and flowers and told me to get started.  I bet this job is going to take at least two days of my summer vacation.  I hate weeds—and by the way I pull them out I bet they are hating me.  Every 15 minutes I need to take a break, get some water—and wish I were younger.   A swim in the pool would sure be fun about now.
