If I marked off a square inch
and counted the grass,
multiplied by 144
to get the blades in a square foot,
then measured the front yard,
length and width,
(subtract the driveway),
and multiplied again by the previous total,
that would be a big number.
And a lot of multiplying
(the dandelions have been doing that too).
So maybe I'd just better mow the lawn
and not think about the size of the job.
