I am extremely lenient when it comes to the maintenance and upkeep of my yard. As a result, certain weeds – primarily crabgrass – have overtaken my lawn. I asked my friends and neighbors for suggestions on how to deal with the problem and received a wide range of advice.
Betty Potter suggested chemical warfare, explaining that was her solution to the problem.
Toby said I should move.
But it was my neighbor Mr. Biggs who made the most convincing argument, perhaps because he made it while shirtless and wearing a U.S. Cavalry hat.
So I drafted this letter to my local airport…
KENNETH SNIPPS PO BOX 9411 FORESTVILLE CT 06011-9411
Plainville, CT 06062
Dear sir or madam,
My name is Kenneth Snipps and I need your help.
Crabgrass has overtaken my yard and according to my neighbor Mr. Biggs, the only real solution to the problem is napalm.
He suggested I hire a young, hot-shot pilot, who can fly in low over my property and a deliver a small napalm strike on my yard. He said you really don’t need much of the stuff.
Anyway, he told me you have a cantina near the airfield where pilots congregate awaiting adventures and job prospects.
My question is does the cantina have a dress code? Will I be allowed in without a tie?
Please let me know soon, I beseech you.
