71. Gardening Tip

Here's a helpful hint for you, that may or may not be covered in the Owner's Manual For Your New Sprinkler: turn off the hose before you attempt to hook up the sprinkler.

Even though it seems like it would save a lot of time by you not having to crawl under the side bushes to get back to the spigot and turn the handle and it would just be so much easier and less chance of getting swarmed by gnats and possibly pricked in the hand by sharp thorns attached to God-knows-what and probably a fine idea to just hook it up while the hose is already going, it is actually NOT a fine idea at all.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
