In the middle of weed wacking my bank yesterday, I ran out of string. Normally I’d be pretty excited about that – it’s a good reason to just give up and try again another day. But since trying again another day isn’t really an option this week since I’ll be out of state starting tomorrow, I’m a little anxious. Right now, it looks like my bank has a horizontal mohawk. It’s not a good look for it. (Then again, it doesn’t have many good looks at all.)
So I headed to Lowe’s right before they closed and got some replacement string. While I was figuring out which kind I needed, I spied this SpeedSpool thing. To me, it sounds like it’ll help spool the string without making me want to tear my hair out, but I’m not 100% sure that’s its purpose. I tried asking someone, but they weren’t sure either. Who knows if it’ll be useful, or just a hunk of junk.
Regardless, at least now I have some string available to me so I can at least pretend to want to do work on the lawn once I get back from vacation. On second thought, maybe I should have just put off that trip to Lowe’s so I’d have an excuse not to… 😉
