One spring day, a beautiful young woman, donned a fresh pinafore and skipped happily to the garden to sow wonderful seeds. In a parallel universe, a slightly sweaty, middle-aged woman trudged out to her garden to also sow seeds.
But alas!!!! The same ugly mass of weeds that had haunted her last fall, was still laying in wait, mocking and sullen.
What to do with the seeds? Would our heroines’ hopes and dreams be dashed into the earth? No! Our gal may have lacked youth, ambition or even pride, but she had something mightier on her side……..
A lighter!!!!!!! And she knew how to use it.
Soon the shame of unwanted weeds was but just a memory and the seeds were sown.
The moral of the story is : Girls in pinafores don’t get to play with fire.
