Leaf Me Alone

I've come to the conclusion that trees purposely don't drop all their leaves at once because they enjoy making us slog out with the ol' rake as often as possible.

I'd swear that as I glanced at the half-clad maples out front this morning, contemplating the work I'd have to do this weekend and knowing that like Der Ahnold, I'd be back later, I saw them smirking at me.

Us city-dwellers with smaller yards wait until they all fall, then rake like lunatics. This morning, I saw a five foot tall, eight foot diameter pile of leaves at the end of our street - good thing it's a one way, as the pile blocked an entire lane. I think the city is due to come around our area tomorrow for the first vacuuming...
