Solving the world's energy crisis one blade at a time...
Will and Xan were outside riding a tractor and tricycle while I planted some flowers in the front yard this evening. Xan apparently noticed that his tractor's gas tank looked a bit empty, so he walked over and yanked out some grass and started stuffing it in the gas tank, slamming the lid shut when he was done. He was very proud of himself. "Gas (or was it grass? - can't tell from his speech), Mommy. Filled it with gas." And then he got on and drove off. Poor kid... I was laughing too hard to explain the difference between "gas" and "grass." Hopefully we won't be finding blades of grass in our vehicles' tanks anytime soon, but wouldn't it be wonderful if we could? Sod farms: The fuel of the future.
