This past weekend, I was pulling weeds. I really should have taken care of them a week earlier and some had grown really big, but better late than never, right? While doing so, I reached a conclusion that I'm sure anyone who's pulled weeds has - it's really hard to get those weeds with big roots with just my bare hands.
Then I came to a brick walkway, leading from the driveway to the backyard.
This area didn't have many weeds. In fact, the weeds that were coming through were all puny in comparison to those I had just finished plucking. In addition to being small, every single one of them remained intact when pulled (resulting in me also getting their roots, unlike some of their larger counterparts).
Seeing this, I was able to identify with these pathetic weeds and realized something about myself and StairwayOfPhi that needs to be addressed.
