and turn around
there's a bug.
Sometimes we try to edge the mower closer to the bugs, hoping they will wise up and fly away. But usually, they just dive closer to the ground. We can't mow over them or risk running them over with the mower wheels, because it causes us heart-rending agony, so we just back up and mow a different swatch, until we encounter a different bug, and have to turn again.
Why are they refusing to move? Are they involved in some kind of protest, where they're the student protester and the mower is the tank, like a bug Tiananmen Square?
There's even a bug relocation program, and we don't discriminate: ladybugs, spiders, mosquito eaters, slugs, snails... all will be spared. When we find bugs in the mower's path, and when they refuse to move, and when we REALLY have to come back and mow that particular patch, we dang well move them to a large, unmowed swath in the very back of the back yard. It's supposed to be a little sanctuary for bugs, lizards, frogs, and anyone else who wants to live there. Bugs, you should all be living back there, you tiny darlings, so we can mow the lawn without holocausting you and your families.
Except for ticks. Ticks, you just stay right in the mower's path. And if we happen to not kill you with the first pass, don't move. We will come back so we can smash your face in with a hammer.
