This is the song that never ends,
It just goes on an on, my friends.
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was,
And now they can't stop singing it forever just because...
Yes, that's the Song that Never Ends. And you either love it or you hate it.
I realized that I was humming that song today. And it was very, very appropriate. Because I realized I was doing the same chore over and over and over (and over!) again. In fact, this chore never ends!
What chore could I be talking about? Weeding!
|I would love to eradicate this weed from my garden!
If you're a gardener, you know all about weeding. It's something that just goes on and on, my friends. You can't stop doing it forever just because... because if you do they'll take over! I learned my lesson the hard way. I thought one little weed looked so pretty, I'd keep it. HA! I'll never be fooled again!
If you're a gardener, you probably like weeding. It's a mindless activity that allows your thoughts to ramble.
If you ever got in trouble as a child for daydreaming, this is for you! You can daydream all you want, think of so many things - important things, trivial things, solutions, problems, humorous things, sad things, so many different things! (Unless you get the Song that Never Ends stuck in your head!) And do you get in trouble? No! People think "Oh, poor thing! Out there weeding all day!".
And it's so satisfying! So much better than housework. So much better than a job. So much better than a project you complete, and then you're done. Because this never ends. It'll always be there. Anytime you want to daydream, just go weed the garden. If you're lucky you'll be rewarded with a weed-free garden. At least for a day or two.
And you'll know all the solutions to life's biggest problems. And if you don't, well, you can think of that next time you weed. Because this is a chore that never ends!
