I’m a big fan of persistence. And I like to see people try again and again. An against the odds sort of thing. So I’ve got to give a shout out to the guy who keeps dropping off landscaping flyers at my house. The grass is high, I know. The flower bed is a wreck, yeah yeah yeah. The bushes are as out of control as the high-strung child of Amy Winehouse and Kiefer Sutherland. Paparazzi everywhere runs for cover and bottles of booze and crack vials shiver in terror. Here’s the thing though: I’m going to get to it. And thanks to you, I’ll do it sooner rather than later. Maybe if you’re just a little more persistence, one day I might win yard of the month. Until then, my yard will look like junkie in need of fix. At the very least like a bad hangover.
