Our friends were getting ready to host a party. Christy was running around the house cleaning and prepping and Mike was being of no use. She told him to be productive, so he went outside and burned weeds with a flame thrower. OK, it wasn’t a flame thrower, but I don’t know what they’re called. Then he tracked soot inside all over the light carpet.
So, whenever we’re doing something under the guise of “productivity” but it’s really not (e.g. posting messages on this blog or chatting with friends on Facebook) it is deemed “Burning Weeds.”
