OK. I'm just gonna spit it out.
And get it over with.
I just hope you consider all the facts before you make a snap judgement and un-follow and un-friend me.
Deep breath, Jenny.
I think I might be a felon.
I spent quite a bit of time googling possible felony charges and even though I can't find this particular violation I'm not really sure things are going to be OK.
I may have to throw myself on the mercy of the court...
... and when I do, I'm not sure what is going to happen so I thought I better give you fair warning.
It's like this.
Here in Arizona we do something called 'putting in a winter lawn'. That means when all of our turf grass dies back, we over-plant with rye grass. It's a horrible process. There is manure involved...and flocks of birds eating grass seed ...and muddy messes everywhere while the tender young grass comes up.
My clothesline is right in the middle of a little patch of winter lawn...
On Friday our youngest Grand was here (the little blonde one you see in a lot of pictures here on my blog)
She was playing on the sidewalk and I walked over to hang out the clothes on the clothesline ...
She gave a terrified gasp.
I looked at her. Her eyes were big and round. She had a look of complete and utter horror on her face.
"Mo, what's wrong!" I cried.
"Grandma! Grandma! What are you doing?" she shouted at me, "Look! LOOK! You are a baby grass killer!!!!!!"
"What? Huh? What?" I shouted back.
With teary eyes she pointed very clearly at the evidence of foul play. "See, Grandma," she reiterated, "Look! You are a baby grass killer!!!!!"
I told you. This is ugly, right? Does this make me a felon? Am I at risk of all the surviving baby grasses filing a class action against me for the wanton destruction of some of their family members?
I just don't know.
I do know that I haven't slept a wink since Friday worrying about what this is going to mean. Every time I hear a police siren anywhere near our house I have been jumping out of my skin!
And on top of that of all that, I'm wondering how the other prisoners treat "baby grass killers". It's probably ugly right? I've seen stuff about this on TV. YIKES!
You know how they say confession is good for the soul?
It's not true.
I am just sick over this.
Even though I've spilled my guts here.
I hope this doesn't make you an accessory to a baby grass killer or something now that you looked at the pictures.
I told you this was going to be awkward.
